I am new to the forum and in need of help with my system. My system currently consist of the following:
3 x 5 kva Synerji inverters running in parallel. 2 months old. Know it is cloned of something but had not much luck with Victron either, lost two 10 kva units and just had enough spending vast amounts of money. Only still using the bms unit.
20 x 230 Amp Silver Calcium batteries wired in 5 packs of 4 for 48 v and total storage of 1150 Amp hour. Oldest battery 2 years. Never discharge them less than 46.7 volt as per supplier recommendation. Each pack is connected to a H02 balancer which keep the all the batteries balanced within .3 volt.
15 x 255 w 36 v Solarworld panels wired for 108 v facing North This bank is split between two inverters
12 x 255 w 36 v Solarworld panels wired for 145 v due to distance facing West @ 55 degrees due to roof angle. This bank feed one inverter.
Even in winter the system is fully charged (57.8 v)at around 11:30 will carrying the household load too and start to float @ 46.7 v for the rest of the day till sunset.
The system is programmed to stop discharging @ 46.7 v. My night time load does not exceed 300 ah but average around 268 ah.
As you all guessed, my problem is that around 2 am my system switch over to grit power.

KobusK posted a topic in Starting In Solar? Feel free to introduce yourself,I have currently got a grid tied solution which works great when the sun shines and the grid is up.
Can I install a Hybrid solution first and keep my grid tied?
In theory the Hybrid will trick the grid tied that the the grid is still up. When the sun is down the grid tied will switch off and I will het back up power from Hybrid system.
Is my assumption correct?
Greetings to all. Has anyone had much to do with aquaponics, I'm thinking of a large splash pool with fish in it and the the water filtered through grow beds so no need for chemicals. The idea is to collect rain water in the fish tank as a storage instead of a jojo tank on the side of the house, with the added bonus of growing a few fish and vegetables.
Ok lads a silly request from me.
I am busy planning the install of a 2nd Axpert to go in parallel with my 3 year old inverter. I have an inverter that is a month older than my current machine (the ideal partner).
I find the parallel cables untidy and would like to put them into trunking along with all the extra cabling. I am planning on using trunking with two channels to separate DC and AC cabling. My observation it that most of the cabling can be accommodated in trunking running horizontally below the inverter but the battery cables run vertically. My clients generally ask for GTIs or hybrids and a couple of single Axperts so this is not something I have thought through. Those of you who have multiple Axperts could I ask you please to post photos of your inverter installs.
Anyone used slotted trunking?
