The direct generation of electric energy from solar irradiation by photovoltaic systems as well as energy storage in batteries is an important pillar of the transition of the energy sector towards renewable energies. This paper points out the requirements for photovoltaic and battery inverters. The actual technical trends and challenges for the development of current and future inverters in the low to medium power range (up to 100 kg inverter weight, installable by max. two persons) are discussed.
