Solar inverters

Power inverters are electronic devices used for converting direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC). A solar inverter converts the variable direct current output of a photovoltaic solar panel (or PV plan) into a utility frequency alternating current that can be fed into a commercial electrical grid or used by a local, off-grid electrical network. Solar central inverters, PV string and micro inverters all require efficient and safe connection systems. Efficiency of the solar inverter is a key subject for investors. By efficiency, we are really saying, what percentage of the power that goes into the inverter comes out as usable AC current (nothing is ever 100% efficient: there will always be some losses in the system). Amphenol AUXEL offers connection solutions for minimizing global inductance, increasing the reliability of your power conversion system.
