What’s a sync inverter?

A synchronous inverter works with the local power grid to regulate energy consumption. It converts DC to AC for everyday use and allows for the use of alternative energy sources. Multifunction and stand alone inverters are also available. Load requirements and voltage should be considered when choosing an inverter.

A synchronous inverter is used to distribute electricity to and from the public power grid, commonly referred to as a grid tie system. Essentially, this electrical inverter works in sync with the local power grid system and allows you to effectively monitor and regulate overall energy consumption within your home or office. For example, if photovoltaic cells were used to generate electricity from the sun, a synchronous inverter converts electricity from direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC) for easier application in everyday use.

An inverter is an electrical device that converts direct current into alternating current. Alternating current is the controlled electrical energy that powers televisions, microwaves, personal computers, and many other electrical devices. There are three main types of inverters: the synchronous inverter, the multifunction inverter and the stand alone inverter. Most homes with alternative energy sources in addition to the local power grid use inverters.

The main advantage of a synchronous inverter is that it allows you to use energy from the electricity grid and alternative energy sources. When alternative energy reserves are depleted, the synchronous inverter draws electricity from the main grid. In some areas, utility companies allow metering, which means that if an alternative energy source produces additional electricity, it can be sold to the utility company.

Stand alone inverters, as the name suggests, are the most basic devices for converting electrical energy. These inverters transform the electrical energy stored in the batteries into usable alternative current. Multifunctional inverters, on the other hand, are a combination of synchronous inverters and stand alone inverters. These electric power systems allow you to use electricity from the mains or battery stored electricity for residential or commercial needs. Therefore, a multifunction inverter can draw alternating current from the batteries when they are fully charged and once discharged, the inverter automatically switches to the mains.

There are some basic factors to keep in mind when choosing an electric inverter, such as the load requirements and the maximum input and output voltage requirements needed to effectively meet the load requirements. These factors will help determine if a synchronous inverter is the best option for your electrical system. While there is no perfect solution for electrical power system components, understanding the different types of electrical inverters will ensure you choose the correct device for your system.
