Solar micro-inverter

A solar micro-inverter, or simply microinverter, is a plug-and-play device used in photovoltaics, that converts direct current (DC) generated by a single solar module to alternating current (AC). Microinverters contrast with conventional string and central solar inverters, in which a single inverter is connected to multiple solar panels. The output from several microinverters can be combined and often fed to the electrical grid. A power optimizer is a type of technology similar to a microinverter and also does panel-level maximum power point tracking, but does not convert to AC per module.
