Poweron unveils new hybrid inverters for residential solar

The Indian manufacturer has introduced wall-mount hybrid solar inverters with nominal power ratings of 3.68 kW, 4.6 kW and 5 kW. The inverters are compatible with both lead-acid and Li-ion battery.

Elusive longevity

The expected lifetime of PV inverters is significantly shorter than that of modules. In many projects, inverter replacement is included in financial calculations from the start, despite the high costs. Research is being conducted into the causes of faults to develop more durable inverters and components. But plant design can already improve the lifespan of inverters in use today, reports pv magazine Germany’s Marian Willuhn.
