Abstract

In this study, a review is proposed about the grid interactive inverters, used to utilize the electrical energy, produced from solar energy, more efficiently and effectively. The historical evolution of the inverters, present topologies and the future trends are investigated. Also the specifications that the inverters have to support and the international standards that specify the needed requirements for grid interactive systems are proposed. Finally the inverters researched up to present are comparatively proposed according to criteria's such as cost, efficiency, reliability and safety, and a comprehensive study has been realized that can be used in inverter selection by the researchers.
