Inverter should be sized to supply expected continuous load demand

The conversion of the direct current (DC) output of renewable energy sources like solar panels into alternating current (AC) is an important aspect of the connection of such energy sources to utility lines and power grids. Therefore, great attention should be dedicated to inverter design and control in order to achieve high system efficiency and reliability. In addition inverters will profit from energy-efficient booster and chopper as well as bridge circuit designs.
