NXP® solutions support residential grid-tie systems—the most common types of photo voltaic (PV) systems today. These power inverter systems typically provide 500 watts to 10 kilowatts of output and do not normally include a battery backup.
For all architectures, output AC power must be synchronized in phase, frequency, and voltage to the grid and have a low total harmonic distortion.
- Centralized architectures use a single inverter to support a string of PV modules
- Distributed architectures use micro inverters; each PV module has its AC output
