String inverters are connected to an array of PV modules where they are wired together in series to produce a high DC voltage.

Microinverters are a relatively new technology that are designed to convert the electricity from one, two or four PV modules.

What are the different types of power inverters?

Inverters convert direct current (DC), which is produced by the solar panels to alternating current (AC) which is used by a home or business. There are two types of inverters: string/centralized inverters and microinverters. Both types of inverters have there advantages and disadvantages.
