App note: Grid-connected solar microinverter reference design

Sunday, October 22nd, 2017

A good read from Microchip on the theory behind inverter design connected to grip power. Link here (PDF) There are two main requirements for solar inverter systems: harvest available energy from the PV panel and inject a sinusoidal current into the grid in phase with the grid voltage. In order...

Open Inverter, an open source micro-solar inverter

Tuesday, October 6th, 2015

Ken Boak has been working on an open source micro-solar inverter project: We wanted to make a design that uses readily obtainable N-type FETS and an Arduino (more strictly a ATmega328P-PU on a breadboard) to generate the PWM signals and provide simple circuit protection, and load sensing. With the PWM signals generated...

Mastervolt soladin RF filtering

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

Brian Dorey writes: Following from the Mastervolt Soladin 600 Inverter RF Interference post about the major RF interference problems generated by the Mastervolt Soladin 600 tie-in mains inverter we have now resolved the RF interference by replacing the unscreened and unearthed plastic case on the inverter with an earthed metal...
