Solar modules convert the sunlight into DC electricity and in specifications which are not suitable for direct use. Additional components are required to convert, condition and monitor the electricity produced so that it may be utilized by common appliances used in homes and offices or may be feed into the grid. This combination of solar panels, inverters, Junction boxes, wires, transformers and other components which finally deliver useful electricity is called a Solar Photo-voltaic (PV) System or a Solar PV Power Plant. The size of a solar power plant can be very small (1 kW or less) which can be easily mounted on home rooftop to thousands of MW (covering huge amount of land).
