More importantly, does AICC on R-Pi work with it? JDP or Manie, is this Inverter in your scope to add to AICC? Would be and option for me, if it is supported. I believe only the Infinisolar V is supported?

We have one that is testing it on the pi.

Yep it works. We support the 3 , 5 and 10 Infini on the Pi

My professor once told me "There is no such a thing as a dumm question". 

So here goes: 

This 10kW unit for sale, can it supply more power that a 5kW expert? I suspect it can only do 3.3 KW max per phase. That 1500 W less that the Expert. I have 3 phase, but would like to go beyond 5 kW  (like 8 kW). perhaps the answer lies is splitting ones DB into three. One for phase 1 supply, one for phase two supply and one for direct Eskom loads. Emergency Gennie on the phase that one would lile to survive. 

Or is there a better plan.? I would like GTI in future.

Yes, this inverter supplies 3.3KW (roughly) per phase. Do you use 5Kw per phase already? The only way to get to that wold be 3x 5KW Victron's, or perhaps 6x 5KVA Axperts. Or 3x 5KW Microcares (quite heavy). All of the above can do GTI

Yip, I do use >5kW occasionally. Today, i see Max Grid Day from ICC = 6108W!!!!. I have tripped the inverter 4 times so far, due to overload. Once I was not home, so had to drive back home to reset. Not nice. Got 2kW elements to replace the 3 kW ones in the Geysers. Job for this weekend to swopout.

Silvernodashi or anyone else, just a general question.

If you loose 1 of the phases, what happens to the output? I'm assuming that all 3 phases will continue on the load side, with the missing phase being generated from solar/battery. Is this correct.

In my area (direct Eskom supply), this happens frequently.

That's quite a good question, as I haven't experienced it yet. My guess is that it would continue from solar power, but I'd hate to lie if it isn't so.

Don't know either, but I wonder about the technical feasibility. At least with the blue inverters there is an option to balance the phases. Even if you have just one inverter, you would put that on the first phase and it will take into account the power on the other phases and balance them to zero.

So it would depend how a three-phase infini does this. I would expect that it balances the three phases to zero, ie it interacts with all three. If one phase drops out, then for safety reasons I would expect it has to drop all three (to avoid accidental feedback on that one), so my expectation would be that a lost phase would send the inverter into battery backup mode.

I may be wrong, but that's my reasoning.

I'm taking a wild guess, and want to think that it would switch over to solar completely, if one phase drops on the Eskom side. I know it doesn't work with 1 phase generators. it's a 3-in-3-out type inverter. You do get single phase in, 3 phase out type inverters which will probably still keep running of one phase drop, on the input side?

I don't really think it's a bad thing if it drops all phases when one goes out. In a condition like that, you're half-likely to get some pretty bad power on the remaining phases anyway.

That whole thing where the current on the neutral is zero in a properly balanced 3-phase system... first time I learned it it blew my mind. How was this even possible!? In time, it started to make sense. Now I visually see it in my mind's eye like a 3-petal flower, with the power running around the outside of the petals (120 degrees out of phase). Pluck off a petal, and the proper response is to shut the whole thing down.

Yeah I suppose that is a weird analogy :-)

The imeon 9.12 does start supplying the phase you lost, only. Quite nice
