Now suppose we simply convert solar panel 24v output DC to AC with a power monitor at the solar panel junxrion and then combine all panel outputs together using a grid tie device that can regulate and generate a pure sine wave output of the unsynced AC ouputs from all panels, we have reduced the overall cost by more than half, cost being the major factor that can drive this technology to the masses. I hope to solve this first, I also read that unlike mosfet an IGBT allows power to flow I one direction from collector to emitter and so I hope my second problem may be solved with this, but I keep my fingers double crossed
Also I don't know where you got your information on IGBT's but they are something I work with fairly often and I can assure you they don't work as you are think they do. They are very much capable of conducting current backwards if reverse biased.
I understand what you're wanting but the reality is alternating current sources cannot be simply connected together randomly like a mix of batteries of matching voltages. It just does not work that way. Physics dictates it.
