 In an AC-coupled system, a grid-tied PV inverter is connected to the output of a Multi, Inverter or Quattro. PV power is first used to power the loads, then to charge the battery, and any excess PV power can be fed back to the grid. In an AC-coupled system, a grid-tied PV inverter is connected to the output of a Multi, Inverter or Quattro.

A micro-grid system will continue to operate, and even keep using solar power.   * Systems with only a grid-tied PV inverter will fail when there is a grid black-out.
