Thanks for posting this information about grid-connected PV systems. I am searching for ways to be grid-connected while having a battery as a back up. Though my setup is hybrid, there are still really some challenges most especially to the local utilities since they need to consider so many things before approving my setup. But either way, I’m glad you posted this.
INDEED, GRID-TIE INVERTER (GTI) SOLAR POWER GEN. SYSTEM IS THE MOST EFFICIENT AND CHEAPEST THOUGH NOT MOST RELIABLE SINCE WHEN THE UTILITY IS OUT THEN POWER FLOW TO THE LOADS ARE HALTED AND BURDEN SOME EVEN THOUGH THE SUN IS UP AND SOLAR PV PANELS ARE GENERATING ELECTRICITY. HOWEVER, WITH THE ADVENT OF HYBRID INVERTER THEN SOLAR POWER USAGE AND IN TANDEM WITH THE LOCAL UTILITY GRID CAN BE DEPENDABLE EVEN DURING NIGHT A SWELL AS DAYTIME BUT WITH THE NEEDED STORAGE BATTERIES BUT WITH ADDITIONAL COST OF INVESTMENT.

Your article is very informative. Thanks a lot for building my concept on grid-connected system.
According to the study’s co-author, despite the increases, the U.S. gets less than 1% of its electricity from solar power.
Can I simply plug my inverter into a receptacle while grid power is on ?
In theory yes, but it needs to be a type that can safely synchronise itself to the frequency and phase of the mains. Also, your mains wiring to the plug socket, and the plug socket itself, needs to be able to handle the power from the inverter. There are companies that sell photovoltaic systems that you can plug directly into the wall socket.
If the power goes out of the grid, can this system automatically switching power from the batteries? If not, then what other things need to be done?
That depends on the inverter you have. Most better quality inverters would detect the blackout and carry on supplying power from the solar array or batteries if there was a power shortage. Like with most things, you get what you pay for.
I really like the information provided in this article. thanks you for improving my skill toward these.
Everything is very open with a really clear description of the challenges. It was really informative. Your site is very helpful. Many thanks for sharing!
i want to how I can design solar panel in grid interconnection
I’d like my son to see this. Is there a pdf or similar that I can send as attachment or such to him. Thanks.
Hi Sherry, Thank you for your question. These tutorials are only available free online, sorry there is no hard copy or pdf version. You can always send him the URL link to this tutorial or site though.
