General Characteristics Of Fuel Cell Hybrid Vehicle

The vehicle in which two or more different power sources are used to move the vehicle is called the fuel cell hybrid vehicle The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy has listed the fuel cell hybrid vehicle as one of the greenest vehicles. Recent research carried out amongst senior automotive executives by KPMG LLP, the U.S. audit, tax and advisory firm, and it has been found that fuel cell hybrid vehicle is being given the highest priority amongst the other alternative fuel technology.

Why Do I Need a Solar Inverter?

Why Do I Need a Solar Inverter?

A solar panel absorbs energy from sun rays and converts the same into direct current (DC). The electronic and electric appliances we use at our homes runs on alternating current (AC). Therefore the power generated in the form of DC needs to be converted into AC to run our home appliances. Solar Inverter is a device which converts DC into AC and makes the power generated by the solar panels useable in our home appliances.

Solar inverters are used to convert the DC into AC. DC can not be used to run your home appliances it must be converted into AC or it will burn your devices. Depending on the cost, different types of inverters are available in the market. Some inverters can generate as perfect sine waves as is provided by the power companies.

Solar Inverters and Converters

Solar Inverters and Converters

The device which converts electricity DC (direct current) generated by solar panel into AC (alternating current) consumable into our normal home devices is known as solar inverter. Solar inverters are available in different capacity from the market. The wise judgment at the time of deciding to buy a solar inverter of larger capacity and you can decrease the number of solar panels if there are budge constraints. Other factors of solar power system need proper attention when deciding to convert on solar power system.
