How do solar panels convert the sun’s energy into electricity?
The sun transmits energy in the form of electromagnetic radiation. When this radiation is absorbed by the solar cells, a chemical reaction occurs, causing rapid electron movement. Because of the way the cells are manufactured with layers of material with differing atomic structures, the electrons are forced to move in one direction, creating direct current, or DC. It then flows into an inverter which converts the DC into alternating current, or AC, to be usable in your home or business.
How does a power inverter work?
A power inverter converts DC power into conventional AC power allowing you to use your favorite devices when an AC outlet is not available. Simply connect an inverter to a battery source, plug your appliance into the inverter and you’re set!
How does a off grid solar power system work?
Sun shines on the solar panels generating DC electricity
The DC electricity is fed into a charge controller which controls the amount of charge Deep cycle batteries are charged
12 volt appliances can be run directly off the batteries or the current routed through an inverter which converts it to 110 60hz or 240V 50Hz AC electricity; suitable for running standard home appliances.
Here is everything ties together. You have your solar panels, your system with a charge controller and inverter built in and your batteries.
