Efficient and Low-Cost Solar Inverter


ShamsiTawanai is developing an efficient and low-cost solar energy solution, to help alleviate the energy crisis of Pakistan, and to reduce the imports of inverter/UPS products.

As electric power from solar panels is received in direct current (DC) form, it needs to be converted to alternating current (AC) for it to be usable in domestic and industrial solar applications. Existing pure sine wave converters are big and expensive. A 5kVA inverter costs anywhere from Rs. 57,000 to Rs. 187,000 in the local market, however, this one will be available for approximately Rs. 30,000 due to its low production cost.
