A good friend of mine is convinced the Earth is flat! Dead serious!
He gets the better of me when I deny it. I answer "Ofcourse its not flat"
His Answer "Do you have proof?"
What is the best way to respond ? This is no joke! haha
Hi I need some help setting up a BMV 702 , It will need to be a step by step guide for dummies?
I have 5 x axpert 5kva inverters in parallel , 1 x string of 24 x 2 volt rolls lead acid batteries
set up is off grid.
I also have a raspberry pi that I'm trying to integrate?
any settings / advice would be greatly appreciated.
Scatterling posted a topic in Starting In Solar? Feel free to introduce yourself,Hi All,
I have just had my PV system installed, and to be honest, I find much of the technical details quite confusing.
My house is fed directly off the Eskom grid via a pre-paid meter.
My grid-tied system has two strings of panels feeding into a Freedom Won Lite 10/7 lithium iron phosphate battery and via 5kW OmniPower Hybrid Inverter into my house. Everything, bar my electric oven, is connected to the inverter. After 9 days of running the system I am contemplating to also connect the electric oven to the system because of the surplus power available.
Here is my problem: Notwithstanding my consumption feeding off my solar reserves, my Eskom pre-paid meter indicates a fluctuating trickle of about 10 kWh over a period of 6 days. I also run a Smappee power consumption monitor that shows the fluctuating trickle.
Question: Should there be a trickle, or should the switch be completely off whilst the system is fed off solar? Am I looking at this the wrong way?
Thank you kindly.
I am living in Pretoria. I have a flat roof and my solar panels are flat on my roof.
1) At what decrees are solar panels suppose the be installed?
2) What increase in sufficiency can I expect should I increase me solar panel decrees?
3) I have 20 300w solar panels. Due to wind issues, how should I structure my panels? One structure or 5 structures ?
4) Do I need to anchor these structures? If yes, how can I do it, without causing waterleaks?
