    Turn on and off inverter with third party device

    I’m going to be purchasing some inverters soon and I would like to find one with a hackable switch or an api . How many of you are controlling your inverters with an api ?

    Turn on and off inverter with third party device

    I thought about a contactor on the output of the inverter but I’m sure it would not be good for it

    Connecting panels on East and west of home

    Thank you all for the great replies . I have a total of 12 panels on the east ( 1 group of 8 and a second group 6 feet away of 4). On the west I have a group of 4 panels that are just over the ridge line from the group of 4 panels on the east . On the south I have another group of 8 . I was...

    Connecting panels on East and west of home

    The inverter is a Deye 8kw it has two mppt inputs that will accept a pv voltage of 100-500 vdc , the mppt range is 125-425 vdc . One of the mppt inputs will connect to an array of 8- 370 w panels . The other input will be used for the two groups of 4 panels

    Connecting panels on East and west of home

    Hi , I have 4 panels on the East and 4 panels on the west of my home . I would like to connect them and run them into one of the mppt inputs of the inverter . All panels have a ts4-a-0 optimizer . Should I 1) connect them all in series ? 2 connect the two groups of 4 in parallel ? 3 connect...

    Connecting solar panels on different sides of roof

    Suppose two similar arrays are on two sides of the roof and connected together with blocking diodes into a mppt input . As the sun progresses across the sky will the power available into the inverter be the same as using 2 mppt inputs ?

    Can the electrical grid handle a boom in electric vehicles?

    unless we find a better solution to store energy, no . Our grid is becoming unstable as it is . We have removed a large portion of base load coal plants and have replaced them with solar which unfortunately we cannot economically store . We can expect more outages nation wide like Texas...

    MPP-Solar LVX-6048

    Correct , I only have one unit . My understanding is the batteries are needed to allow the units to current share when paralleling inverters . I had hoped to use the capacitors to do this and to also store some energy for loads with inrush like AC compressors . When I purchase batteries ...

    MPP-Solar LVX-6048

    I wish it could grid tie with a current transformer ( ct ) on the mains coming into the home . The ct is to measure the current flow and provide the inverter a feedback so it can just provide the loads for the home . This unit can do this if the inverter is between the loads and the AC input...

    MPP-Solar LVX-6048

    Thanks for your reply , I will try to precharge the cap , one thought is use a diode on a power supply connected to the cap that would become reversed biased when the inverter charges the caps up to 48 v . I agree this inverter is difficult to adapt to homes that are already wired / finished ...

    Lvx 6048 using a ultracapacitor instead of batteries

    I have asked this question in a different forum location that is more appropriate ( I do not see a method to remove my original question here ) https://diysolarforum.com/threads/mpp-solar-lvx-6048.19099/page-14#post-315741

    MPP-Solar LVX-6048

    I have been doing some experimenting with the lvx 6048 trying to use a 6 farad ultracapacitor in place of the battery to cover inrush . For some reason the lvx will not attempt to charge the capacitor. Is this because it is completely discharged to begin with ? The other experiment that was...

    Ac input and output connected on hybrid MPP inverter?

    I’m running into the same situation, I have a lvx6048 and it is not easy to break off loads into a sub panel . I wish the ac output could grid tie with cts on the main for net zero . If the inverter could operate a transfer switch on the mains then it could run the loads during power outages

    is the API for the mpp inverters proprietary? I would like to change functions automatically from a third party device

    MPP-Solar LVX-6048

    Can anyone verify please if it is possible to communicate/ change settings on the lvx from a third party device such a plc ? It does not appear that the unit has these capabilities? Our utility has a peak/ off peak rate if the consumer opts in . Basically for 4 hours a day the rate is 11...

    MPP-Solar LVX-6048

    I tested this at around 3 pm . The panels were just laying on their backs on the ground . The load was 1.6 kw with the two ac units going , I’m not sure what it was with the skill saw going . The only problem i had is , without batteries, I had to start the 10 k btu unit first or it would kick...

    MPP-Solar LVX-6048

    Tested a lvx 6048 today . Used 8 370 watt panels . Ran a 10000 btu ac, a 6000 btu ac and could still start and cut boards with a skill saw . Did not connect batteries or utility
