solar on-grid systems

 

A grid interactive solar system feeds the energy directly into the public grid and the surplus energy is consumed by local loads. A solar grid inverter adapts its voltage and frequency to the grid voltage and frequency. A solar grid inverter can be best understood as a supplier of electrical current to the grid and to grid-connected loads.
Compensation for the exported electrical energy may be given by the utility in the form of net-metering or a feed-in tariff mechanism.

 

In comparison with stand-alone systems:

 

Advantages:

  • All available solar energy is consumed or exported
  • No battery bank required
  • Solar grid inverter capacity need not match the connected load
  • Higher system efficiency
  • Fewer system components

Disadvantages:

  • The system doesn’t work during grid outage
  • No energy storage
