I am in my third year at college and i need to come up with an idea for a project to undertakle for the 8 month duration of the academic year. I major in electrical engineering and i am very intersted in renewable energy systems, solar in particular.

For my project, I was thinking of building an inverter that will invert the DC 'sunlight' to AC that can be used by household appliances. That is a pretty straight foward concept but i really wanted to add some clever, innovative electronics in the whole inversion process to either conserve battery life, increase efficiency etc. :confused:

If anyone is experienced in the design of inversion circuits any other suggestions is very much welcomed.

I will really apreciate any suggestions.
