What Is DC Coupling In A Home Solar Power System?

What Is DC Coupling In A Home Solar Power System?

The facts about DC Coupling.

Direct current ( or D.C. ) is the type of electricity that is naturally produced by solar panels. It is also the type of electric current that is needed if you are to store the energy in a chemical battery or supercapacitor. DC is not however the type of electric current that we need to run our home electrical appliances or equipment for industry. Read more What Is DC Coupling In A Home Solar Power System?
