What is an Inverter/Charger?

The term “Inverter/Charger” or “Combined Inverter Charger” refers to a device used in solar energy systems that integrates the functions of a solar charge controller and an inverter into a single unit. This unit is capable of both converting DC to AC and AC to DC. The combination of these functions is typically more cost-effective, efficient, and easier to install, commission, and maintain.

In situations where there is limited solar radiation or unreliable grid power, an Inverter/Charger is an excellent option because it automatically switches between available sources such as solar panels, external power generators, and battery-stored energy to provide uninterrupted power output for consumers.
Furthermore, a combined charger inverter provides not only smart switching but also intelligent modes to optimize energy consumption and generation cycles and determine the energy budget balance.

Having the ability to work with external AC sources is a benefit of the Inverter/Charger. In situations where solar energy or stored energy is limited, the device can automatically activate an external power generator to charge the batteries or supply power to consumers. This feature helps to extend the life of the batteries and reduce gasoline expenses.

The capacity of the inverter and the charge controller determines the power rating of these devices. EPEVER manufactures Hybrid inverters chargers of up to 5KW.

IPOWER-PLUS Series is a high-quality, reliable, and safe pure sine wave inverter that can convert 12/24/48VDC to 220/230VAC and power AC loads. It is available in power ranges from 500W to 5000W and is designed to meet international standards. The inverter is suitable for a variety of situations where DC to AC conversion is required, including RVs, boats, residential properties, and places that require high-quality electrical power. The IPOWER-PLUS series is also compatible with lithium-ion batteries.

What kind of applications suit Inverter/Chargers most?

Inverter/chargers have a wide range of applications, including commercial and backup solar power systems, recreational vehicles, and boats. They are also frequently used as power backup systems, such as UPS.

Inverters/chargers application scenarios

Their compact design makes them an ideal choice for use in limited spaces, resulting in reduced wiring and lower costs.
Inverter/chargers are designed to deliver sustainable and reliable performance and can be adapted to different energy sources, such as utility power, external power generators, and solar PV modules.
If you are dealing with low solar irradiance, limited battery storage capacity, or need to connect to external power or grid connections, a hybrid inverter charger is a perfect solution to your energy needs.
Trust the versatility and adaptability of inverter/chargers for your energy needs.

Ease of installation, commissioning, and monitoring

Hybrid inverter chargers are designed to offer ease of installation, commissioning, and monitoring. The built-in connections between the battery and other components within the system mean fewer bus bars, wiring, and protective elements are necessary compared to separate installations of an inverter or charge controller. This simplifies the installation process and enhances overall performance.
