CE512: AC Coupling

NABCEP CE Hours: .75 JTA/Other.  Although the concept of AC coupling has been maturing over the last ten years or so, there are still many questions that surround this unique model of grid tied battery backup and stand-alone systems. This webinar will explore the basics behind AC coupling by explaining what it is, how it is accomplished, the advantages of using this concept and when it makes sense to use such a topology.
