    Sunsynk 5Kw queries

    Thanks Tariqe and Nod. Any ideas why no logging occurs in the night. Does it have anything to do with the fact that there is no battery at the moment? Or does it just not log consumption in the night? Or is there a setting that i am missing?

    Sunsynk 5Kw queries

    Just bought and installed a Sunsynk 5kw inverter. I only have panels installed at the moment. During the day, it runs like a dream. Blends power to the load when load demand is high. Even reaches beyond the load circuit when solar power is higher than load demand and provides power to the...

    Understanding inverter spec: Min PPT voltage of Kodak VMiii 5KW

    Thanks for the retailer references. The circuit i have isolated for the PV has a relatively small demand during the day. But i could add other plug points to it if my PV capacity increases significantly. The King does require more thought on configuration based on the narrow 60V-115V PV...

    Understanding inverter spec: Min PPT voltage of Kodak VMiii 5KW

    Thanks for the real world experience of this unit. I am sure this thread will be helpful for other newbies as well. If it is ethical on this forum, pls forward the name of your supplier for the Kodak VMiii. There are so many suppliers on the net and Takealot is not the cheapest. I am far from a...

    Understanding inverter spec: Min PPT voltage of Kodak VMiii 5KW

    Quite clear now. Thanks. Will probably add another 2 to 4 panels after monitoring the efficiency of this setup for my relatively small application.

    Understanding inverter spec: Min PPT voltage of Kodak VMiii 5KW

    Hello. Hoping to get some advice on my imminent upgrade. Below are some of the specs of the Kodak VMiii 5Kw 48V inverter. I am trying to understand what is meant by "MPP Range @ Operating Voltage: 120 VDC ~ 430 VDC" and its demands on panel configuration. I have 4 X Canadian Solar 415W panels. I...

    Inverter Capacity from Solar Panels???

    Not yet as the inverter only reports on volts from PV. With two 50V panels in parallel, I get a max of 45V from PV so i am guessing about 16A max.

    Inverter Capacity from Solar Panels???

    My theory is more panels will better suit the load demand during the day without dipping into batteries as much. And of course in preparation for inverter and battery upgrades later.

    Inverter Capacity from Solar Panels???

    I have set the max charging current to 20A. So neither the solar nor the utility will surpass that current. The setting for Utility max is also set to 20A. The PWM charge controller is built in. I have set battery low voltage cut off to 23V. But there is another setting that allows batteries to...

    Inverter Capacity from Solar Panels???

    @agentrfr: Just been paging through manual. There is a setting for max charging current which i set to 30A. Range for this is (20, 30, 40 and 50A). Manual says, Max charging current= utility charging current + solar charging current. Then there is a setting for max utility charging of which the...

    Inverter Capacity from Solar Panels???

    Very interesting. I never thought of the current going to the batteries. Okay, will consider 2 X 200Ah batteries . Thanks to all for the great advice.

    Inverter Capacity from Solar Panels???

    I have attached datasheet portion of the panels. Yes it is PWM. Hope to get an MPPT controller when I upgrade inverter. I just wanted to make sure that nothing would blow/short when i have 4 of these panels in parallel. So it will be 50V and possibly 40A max from these 4 panels.

    Inverter Capacity from Solar Panels???

    i assumed that point 4, 5 and 6 gave those limitations. I have also attached the specs from the manual.
