Hybrid and off-grid Inverters Summary

Modern inverters/chargers are used in both hybrid (grid-tie) and off-grid solar systems to manage batteries, solar, and back-up power sources such as a generator. The inverter/charger and known as a multi-mode inverter functions and a energy management unit and be can be either AC coupled with solar inverter/s or DC coupled with solar charge controller/s. You can learn more about the various AC and DC coupled systems here.

The hybrid/off-grid inverters and energy storage systems list is divided into four catagories:

  1. Hybrid interactive and solar inverter combination

  2. Complete hybrid system with built-in battery storage

  3. All-in-one solar hybrid inverter

  4. Battery system - energy storage

Released July 2017 - V1.2

1. AC and DC coupled Hybrid/off-grid interactive inverter/chargers

Hybrid interactive battery storage Inverters

Other Features:

  • Batt Temp Mon = Battery temperature monitoring for longer battery life (Gel and AGM - Lead Acid)

  • Load Shifting = Enabling off-peak charging of batteries to be used during peak times

  • Peak Shaving = Also called peak lopping is the ability to reduce peak demend

  • Batt sense = Battery sense input to take into account voltage drop and optimise battery charging

  • Batt mid sense = Battery mid string sensor to detect cell voltage imbalance (Gel and AGM - Lead Acid)
