Open Inverter, an open source micro-solar inverter

Ken Boak has been working on an open source micro-solar inverter project: We wanted to make a design that uses readily obtainable N-type FETS and an Arduino (more strictly a ATmega328P-PU on a breadboard) to generate the PWM signals and provide simple circuit protection, and load...
