Good answer as always poida why " low frequency " transformer designs are used... simply surge rating are tremendous, the only real limit to surge rating is battery, mosfet, cables, heat buildup... not in that order of course..

Another point too is the fact that you can ac couple them to a " on grid inverter " reducing load on system, increasing efficiency of solar input and any excess power above usage will " flow " backwards and charge your batteries... and can even be regulated with pwm..

" High Frequency " inverters cannot do the above..
