The Photovoltaic generator (PV – generator) is the total arrangement of modules and branches. Solar cells are the smallest units of a photovoltaic installation and convert light into current (photoelectric effect). The individual solar cells are connected together in a module (in series connection).
In order to achieve a higher system voltage, modules are connected in Series, called a string. PV strings of a Solar PV array are electrically connected to array junction box with protection devices.
Grid-connected Inverter is an integrated system consisting of a solar charge controller and inverter which converts the direct current (DC) generated by the PV arrays to Alternating Current (AC) which is fed to the LT panel.
Solar Power Plant comprises of the main equipment and components listed below:
