What does it mean when the inverter is overloaded?

The load power consumption reaches or exceeds the peak power of the inverter. Inverter overload occurs because the inverter is used to its limit or reaches peak power output. For the life of the inverter, please regulate the use of the inverter and do not exceed the rated power of the inverter.
