Universal Power Interface
Description: 

Universal Power Interface uses intense amounts of logic and can bi-directionally transfer power between any combination of its connections. For example, the Heart Transverter HT2000 power module has two DC connections and two AC connections. Each DC terminal can connect to anything from 10-50 volts to things like batteries of any chemistry, solar panels, fuel cells, DC wind generators, alternators, etc. The AC connections are for AC loads, the Grid and generators. This Transverter system includes a remote panel, which reports the condition of everything connected to the system and allows the user to control how power is managed. The remote panel has a USB interface allowing for connection to any computer for updates, custom configurations and in-depth live analysis of everything connected to it. The Power Interface can simultaneously be any combination of inverter, grid-tie inverter, UPS, charge controller, DC-DC converter, programmable power supply or load bank, etc. [1].

-Automatic surge assist to grid
