    Design Review - Growatt SPF 5000 ES Grid Backup & Neutral Bonding

    Hi Craig, Thanks for the post. Yes, I agree with you and this is the most simplistic way to look at this. However, I believe we need to take into account what each person is trying to achieve with their system. I also need to voice I am not an electrician up front. My plan is to carry my...

    Design Review - Growatt SPF 5000 ES Grid Backup & Neutral Bonding

    What is everyones thoughts on using a Victron Auto Transformer with the built in protection? I know it is more expensive but might be less than the additional wiring and devices on the SolarEdge Auto Transformer. https://www.invertersupply.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=5995

    Design Review - Growatt SPF 5000 ES Grid Backup & Neutral Bonding

    Hi Gents, I have been following the thread since I have just purchased a Growatt 5k ES too with the AT. Do you guys have the current schematic available to view? I have not yet replaced my current 3kTL yet with the 5k ES so could help in some preliminary testing too. Also, I cannot see the...

    New PV Keeper 2.0 for Growatt Inverters

    I sure don't like flying blind not being able to see what inverter is doing. I couldn't get the Growatt wifi dongle to work either and it was on the previous inverter too.

    New PV Keeper 2.0 for Growatt Inverters

    Thanks Joe, not finding where the SA version is. Pierre said the Modbus data looks different than any Growatt inverter he has seen. I will see if I can find another cable to try. Coal

    Growatt 12k 150 Vic. I would recommend the 12k 250 Vic for easier expansion. I don’t really need the 12k either. I probably could have gotten by with the 8k or 10k. Used Trina 275w panels 38 Voc and 8 isc. 3 panels in a string. I have two arrays of 4 strings for 6600 of the 275w. I have...

    PV1 has 3300 and PV2 has 4820. Right now I am not able to use all solar available, so don’t plan to increase until I can add 220v load. Hopefully this month.
