In building; a tie beam is the main horizontal roof beam just above the wall that connects the bases of rafters.
In solar system design; the tilt angle is the angle at which a photovoltaic array is set to face the sun relative to a horizontal position. The tilt angle can be set or adjusted to maximize seasonal or annual energy collection. Usually a domestic system will have an angle fixed.
In electrics; total harmonic distortion is the measure of closeness in shape between a waveform and its fundamental component. The level of closeness is handled automatically by the inverter at around 99% efficiency.
