Inverters are key components in any photovoltaic (PV) power system.  Inverters convert direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC).  They control power factor (e.g. reactive power) and ensure power output quality aligns with downstream equipment specs.  And finally, they play an essential role in the protection, operation and communication philosophy of the solar power plant.
