240vdc to 240vac power generation ?
I’m curious as to why most wind turbines and solar panel inverters generally range from 12-48vdc why cant it just be generated at 240vdc and convert that into 240vac? My understanding is that higher voltage means less current therefore less resistance and heat produced, resulting in a more efficient system. I always hear about inverters generating a lot of heat under load. Does anyone know if this is possible? I'm looking into building a wind turbine to feed power back into the grid, but the cost of inverters are making it an unfeasible project.
