Understanding Solar Terminology: AC-Coupled VS DC-Coupled


Do you know the difference between AC and DC-Coupled connections?

AC-Coupled connection means the energy storage system is coupled with an AC power source such as the grid or PV inverter. DC-Coupled connection means the energy storage system is coupled with a DC power source directly such as PV panels or DC batteries.


DC-Coupled is ideal for new and off-grid energy storage system installations in both residential and commercial applications. However, AC-Coupled systems can be much more convenient for retrofits in which customers want to add batteries to existing solar systems, and the AlphaESS SMILE-B3-PLUS was born to be a perfect fit for this market. It can be plugged into the switchboard just like other home appliances and expandable by simply stacking more battery modules to make the best use of your PV.

Beware of the Brand
Infringement of AlphaESS

Recently, a severe infringement and fraud issue has caught our attention. A FAKE application with a FAKE logo, a FAKE website and even FAKE videos under the name of AlphaESS are now spreading all over India, attempting to seduce people to invest money in energy storage systems by using a FAKE AlphaESS logo and real AlphaESS products photos.

It's obvious that they are looting money by using a FAKE AlphaESS brand and have seriously violated the intellectual property rights of AlphaESS.

AlphaESS shall spare no efforts and no costs to go against the violation by all means legally before more people get deceived.
