A Smart, Efficient, and Light Solar Microgrid Inverter

In modern day power engineering, we are seeing the gradual shift away from non-renewable energy sources like coal and petroleum, and towards clean energy. An important component of converting renewable sources like solar into usable electricity is called an inverter. This system controls, regulates, and monitors the power that is generated and delivered to a load. For our design, we specifically implement a microgrid inverter, which is a technology that relies on having many microgrid inverters interconnected on the same network, rather than a single distributed energy source. Thus, it is important to design the inverter to be safe, efficient, modular, and affordable.
