How do our Grid Connected Solar Rooftop Systems work?
Grid Connected Solar Rooftop Systems are often rooftop based and are integrated into buildings but in India, the major deployment has been in the form of MW scale power projects which took off after the launch of the National Solar Mission in 2010.
- Electricity in the form of Direct Current (DC) is produced in the solar cells of the solar panels .
- The DC electricity from the panels passes through DC network to a grid tied inverter or a hybrid/SMD (Solar – Mains – Diesel) inverter.
- The Inverter converts the DC electricity into 220V AC for single phase or 415V AC for 3 phase by using state of the art MOSFET or IGBT technology.
- This is fed to the loads connected to the A/C distribution system linked to the AC grid supply.
- Solar power will be used as and when it is generated and integrated into the power supply .
(Optionally the solar power maybe stored in batteries and consumed as and when desired by the client)
- The metering of the power consumed by the client will through a dedicated automated meter(This will be installed as per the approval of the local distribution company and will comply with CEA standards.)
The design of the system will be finalized during the preparation of the baseline study for the location.
