What is a hybrid inverter?
A hybrid inverter is an electrical system that combines both a traditional inverter and a grid-tied (mainly solar) energy source. It works by directly converting AC electricity from the grid into DC power, which is then converted back into AC power and sent to your home. This type of inverter is ideal for households with both a solar energy system and a regular electric supply, as it can draw power from both sources, optimizing energy production and saving you money.
Hybrid Inverter Characteristics
This type of hybrid inverter works as an intelligent energy management system, it integrates solar energy produced by the solar panels into the electrical grid of the house. When surplus energy is produced, it acts as a battery charger and stores the surplus energy, thus creating an efficient and effective energy management system. A hybrid inverter can also be supplied with electricity from the electricity grid in exceptional cases of deficit solar energy, preventing interruptions to the house’s electricity supply. Hybrid hybrids perform three fundamental functions, from converting direct current into alternating current to charging batteries and integrating with the electric grid to prevent power interruptions.
Differences between hybrid inverters and other types of solar inverters
Compared to off-grid inverters, hybrid inverters are technologically advanced in terms of their functions and characteristics, thereby being at the top of the solar inverter list. Using different energy sources in parallel, the hybrid inverter is able to combine the energy generated by the solar photovoltaic panels with the electrical power in the house, always optimizing consumptions in relation to sources, avoiding electrical supply cuts.
When it comes to off-grid inverters, they convert direct current from solar panels into alternating current, limiting the alternative sources of energy that can be derived from the network. As long as the inverter charger, all-in-one inverter, and hybrid inverter is not connected to the network, they can work in this case.
A charger inverter differs from an inverter in that it uses the electricity from the electric network to charge the batteries, but cannot, in any way, work in parallel with other energy sources, such as hybrid inverters. When the charger inverter detects low battery levels, it uses the electrical network for agriculture up to the configured level, and converts it and uses it to supply the electrical supply.
It is very simple to differentiate between the hybrid solar inverter and the all-in-one inverter. It has the functions of hybrid inverters, can charge batteries through the electrical network, has solar energy-charged current regulator batteries, and can operate with the network, but they are unable to work in parallel like hybrid inverters.
There are certain differences between a grid connection inverter and a hybrid inverter; the grid inverter works only with solar panels and network, while the hybrid inverter can also work with batteries and solar panels.
