I ended up calibrating it to 310Ah, which corresponds to a 3% loss each year (360Ah * 0.97 ^ 5). I also had to tell the monitor when the batteries were at 100%, which I simply did not have a good answer for. I did it after a stretch of 4 sunny days during which I made very little use of the batteries. In the summer I'll re-calibrate.


the short answer to your question is yes, that type of inverter does exist, they are very rare. The Delta model H6 (Thailand) is one example. A battery less grid tie inverter that is also advertised as a backup inverter for power outages, up to its full rated 6kw output, provided the solar array is sized for the load and in direct sun, no clouds. This unit ...


I'd like to find a way to have my array work when I need it most! You'll need to invest in a home battery bank. These batteries are built to simulate grid-like conditions by providing a constant stream of power to your house (until exhausted of course). The power produced by the inverters would fluctuate too much for most electronics to operate correctly - ...
