A PV system is an energy system which directly converts energy from the sunlight into electricity. Once light hits the solar cell (array), electricity is generated and the DC is collected at a PV inverter.
PV inverter is a device that changes DC power to AC power and is also a key component in PV systems. There are two main types of PV systems, Grid Connected or Off Grid. Grid connected systems are usually installed on a building and provide electricity directly into the mains supply. Off grid systems are usually used where power is required but access to a mains supply is unavailable.
