1. AC or DC Coupled Off-grid / Hybrid inverters

Jason Svarc

Interactive or multi-mode inverters are capable of operating in on-grid (hybrid) or off-grid modes and can be used to create both AC and DC coupled systems. The Interactive and solar inverter combination is the most common configuration and together form a typical AC coupled solar installation. These high end systems can also be expanded to work with multiple solar inverters or other energy generation systems in different locations to form independent micro-grids.
