A solar PV transformer is a device that helps to increase the efficiency of solar panels. Solar PV transformers are made up of a number of different parts, including an inverter and a rectifier.
The inverter transforms the direct current from the solar panels into alternating current, which can be used by the rest of the electrical system. The rectifier converts the alternating current back into the direct current so that it can be used by the solar panels.
How do they work?
Solar PV transformers are used to convert the direct current (DC) generated by solar panels into alternating current (AC) needed by electrical appliances and other equipment. Solar PV transformers are also used to stabilize the DC output of solar panels, which can be affected by varying weather conditions and changes in light intensity.

Different types of Solar PV Transformers
Solar PV transformers are classified by the type of power they produce: bipolar, unipolar, or poly-phase.
Solar PV transformers come in different sizes and shapes to suit different applications. A bipolar transformer produces two phases of alternating current, while a unipolar transformer produces only one phase. Poly-phase transformers can produce multiple phases of alternating current.
Solar PV transformers are typically made out of metal and have a plastic casing. They are mounted on the roof of a building or on a pole adjacent to the solar PV array. The transformer converts the direct current from the solar PV array into alternating current that can be used by an electrical grid.
