Panel / Array
A solar panel array is a string of solar panels connected in series. The solar panels are usually connected with solar cable and MC4 connectors. The maximum number of solar panels per string depends on the actual input voltage of the solar inverter.
Photovoltaic mounting systems (also called solar module racking) are used to fix solar panels on surfaces like roofs, building facades, or the ground. These mounting systems generally enable retrofitting of solar panels on roofs or as part of the structure of the building (called BIPV).
Solar racking systems are used to safely fix solar panels to various surfaces such as roofs, building facades, or the ground. The system is designed to easily be retrofitted to existing rooftops and structures
The inverter converts the direct current (DC) electricity generated by the solar panel to alternating current (AC) electricity, in order to be used by the electrical grid.
The role of the combiner box is to combine the strings from the solar panels into one box. Each string is attached to a fuse terminal; the output of the fuse terminals is combined into a single cable that connects to the inverter box.
Solar panel transformers convert the DC voltage coming out of the photovoltaic systems and step it up to the rated output. This can also be called as a solar inverter transformer because it inverts DC to AC
Substations are fenced facility owned and operated by utilities. They convert high voltages to low voltages, or vice versa. Substations are necessary because of differences in voltages
Battery Energy Storage--
Battery energy storages reserve energy for later consumption and is charged by a connected solar system. The stored electricity is consumed after sundown, during energy demand peaks, or during a power outage.
Rooftop solar power systems, or rooftop PV systems, are photovoltaic systems that have electricity-generating solar panels mount on the rooftop of a residential or commercial building or structure.
Carports / Canopy
Solar canopies are custom-built outdoor structures designed to hold an overhanding solar array. They allow for distributed solar energy generation, i.e. the production of solar electricity on-site.
