Types of photovoltaic power generation systems

As distributed photovoltaics become increasingly prevalent in thousands of households, the demands for photovoltaic solutions are becoming more diverse. The conventional on- grid system, where photovoltaic power generation is primarily for self-use, is no longer the sole option. Depending on the specific requirements of different scenarios, photovoltaic power generation systems can be categorized into five …
