Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I just saw something that is a bit confusing to me and i hope someone could explain the difference.

I read something about an energy production system design and there are some calculations including some losses of the system. Taking into account the inverter losses, lets say for example 25% losses, in order to find the energy that must be produced, the energy is divided by 0.75.

I dont know why divide with 0.75 instead of multiplying with 1.25 and what is the difference.

Thanks in advance.
