Difference between Solar Systems & Solar Inverters

Solar panels generate direct current (DC) electricity which can’t be used by the grid. An inverter ensures the power you generate is compatible with the grid by switching it to alternating current (AC) which the electrical grid uses. Inverters today do a lot more and its no surprise that a solar inverter is the most important piece of equipment in a solar energy system. Not only do they monitor and report power generation and usage, they also boost productivity and save energy.

What about Solar Inverters repairs?

Solar inverters are essentially the brains of a rooftop solar system, the solar panels produce electricity, and the inverter makes it possible to use the power.

Solar inverters come with a self-diagnosis feature and the problem fixes itself as the inverter is restarted.  If the inverter displays an error message, you can check the manufacturer’s manual and troubleshoot the issue. However, if you can see the error message is displayed at all times, you may need to contact licensed solar technicians to fix the inverter. Some of the more common reasons your Inverter might need repairs include:

  1. Overheating: Solar inverters can fail due to overheating caused by exposure to high temperatures, inadequate ventilation, or other environmental factors
  2. Component failure: The failure of individual components, such as capacitors, transistors, or diodes, can cause a solar inverter to fail
  3. Lighting strikes: Solar inverters can be damaged by lightning strikes, which can cause electrical surges that overload the system.
  4. Power surges: Power surges caused by grid fluctuations or electrical storms can damage the solar inverter
  5. Age: Over time, solar inverters can wear out and fail due to normal wear and tear.
  6. Installation issues: Improper installation or maintenance can also cause inverters to fail.
  7. Damage due to insects and animals
