Abstract

The DC-AC system with a small continuous load is analyzed putting emphasis on the inverter efficiency drop at part-load condition. The system robustness and lifecycle cost are calculated in various conditions to investigate the effects of the small continuous load. In addition to the large energy consumption by the small continuous load, inverter efficiency drop observed at part-load condition makes it more important to design a cost-effective system.
