Smart Solar Inverters
Smart Solar Inverter Adelaide
Smart Solar Inverters are required to dynamically work with the grid to increase its resilience, reliability, safety and security.
Smart inverters allow for better performance, monitoring, and fault identification and diagnoses for homeowners with solar panels.
Like traditional inverters, smart inverters convert the direct current output of solar panels into the alternating current that can be used by consumers in their homes and businesses. Smart inverters go beyond this basic function to provide grid support functions, such as voltage regulation, frequency support and ride through capabilities.
Clean Energy Council - Approved Solar Retailer
Accreditation with the Clean Energy Council recognises solar electricians who have undertaken the necessary training to service, repair, engineer and install solar systems, solar inverters, and home battery systems on Adelaide homes & offices.
CEC-accredited service, repair, installer, and designer solar electricians strive beyond industry best practice standards, producing systems that are safe, reliable, and meet customer expectations and requirements.

What is a Smart Inverter?
The term “smart inverter” has become a buzzword in the industry, but what does it really mean? For an inverter to be considered smart, it must have a digital architecture, bidirectional communications capability and robust software infrastructure. The system begins with reliable, rugged and efficient silicon-centric hardware, which can be controlled by a scalable software platform incorporating a sophisticated performance monitoring capability. A smart solar power inverters must be adaptive and able to send and receive messages quickly, as well as share granular data with the owner, utility and other stakeholders.
Such systems allow installers and service technicians to diagnose operational and maintenance issues — including predicting possible inverter or module problems — and remotely upgrade certain parameters in moments. These intelligent-power-electronics devices must also include stout application-programming-interface (API) functionality that provides fleet owners and other partners a way to tie in their own software to create powerful enterprise-level tools.
Why are Smart Inverters so important?
“Smart inverters” for solar panel systems are a more sophisticated version of power electronics that can make autonomous decisions to keep the grid stable and reliable as more distributed energy resources come online. Instead of just feeding power into the grid, smart inverters are capable of having two-way communication with it. Thanks to advanced software, smart inverters can perform specific grid-supportive functionalities related to voltage, frequency, communications and controls.
Inverters without these smarts simply shut down after sensing any grid disturbance — a voltage or frequency fluctuation — even if that fluctuation was small and inconsequential.
The key to a stable grid is consistent voltage and frequency. Too many tripping inverters on the grid can cause instabilities like voltage fluctuations that lead to blackouts or brownouts. An everyday example of the effects of voltage fluctuation is when you turn on a high-voltage appliance, like a vacuum, and the lights in your home flicker.
To avoid harmful voltage fluctuations to the grid due to solar power, smart inverters can ride-through small disturbances (for example, voltage changes), meaning they can switch into standby mode and observe how long the disturbance takes place, then turn off only if the disturbance lasts too long.
Along with communicating with the grid, smart solar power inverters also communicate with the different parts of an individual array. Smart inverters use data communication to comply with Rule 21 rapid shutdown requirements. The communication between the inverter and the rest of the system along the DC power lines allows fire personnel to easily de-energize a home’s solar system in case of an emergency.
Smart inverters would allow Australia’s Energy Market Operator (AEMO) to make more accurate predictions of grid fluctuations. This is vital, as a rapidly growing pool of behind-the-meter rooftop solar sources places strain on reliability as their combined input fluctuates.
Software is Key to Smarts
Enphase is one inverter company that has worked to evolve quickly when it comes to smart inverter technology. Co-founder Raghu Belur said the team realized that inverters can’t just be “a dumb box that sits attached to the grid. You have to think about integration. And the only way to get to integration is by having an inverter that’s software-defined.”
For only $165, we offer a total solar system maintenance and system checks package. The inspection entails:
- Provide you with a full solar system inspection, with a detailed report after completion. Sharpe Group will quote you for any additional service work required (if applicable on findings).
- Our solar inspection involves a 50 point check.
- Problems will not fixed during check – but we will advise you of any problems and then provide quote to rectify any problems found.
- Solar Inspection is a fixed quote and can take up to 2 hours to complete. The Average inspection takes 30mins – 60mins.
