Properties / Re: Please Help!!! Who Knows Nice Dreams Properties? by dejidotun2000(m): 3:45pm On May 21
I bought a plot in that same estate and recall that they were acting funny but I didn't really follow up.
I think we should contact other buyers so we can better channel our enquiries.

Hello, what you are seeking for is rare .. I assume your current inverter dosnt charge ,why not sell the old 12v inverter unit and simply get a 12v 1000w or 2000w power inverter with inbuilt 50-70a adjustable intelligent charging feature ranging within 85-110k ! You can contact me if interested

Good day people.

I need a good quality , 3 stage, 12V DC battery charger capable of at least 30A.

It's to be used to charge a 12V, 400AH inverter battery bank.(the inverter lacks an inbuilt charger).

Many thanks for your inputs.

Travel / Re: Diary Of An Uber Driver (interactive) by dejidotun2000(m): 5:35am On Apr 01
The rider paid cash. What if he claims to have given you #5500 instead of the #4500 he actually gave ?
Just wondering...

Romeo3:
.

"we normally don't pay more than 4200. Just take this 4500. I didn't expect it to get to this. I like your service, i hope to call you some other time"


He finished his lecture, and i collected the 4,500. I reversed out of his compound and parked beside his gate. Brought out my phone and narrated to uber, how after driving this man for over an hour, to this dead zone, he has refused - while speaking English - to pay his complete fare. While I was still there, uber refunded me the complete balance. He will surely wake up to see a deficit on his account, which he must agree to pay, before he takes the next uber ride....

AVS30 is more than enough unless the voltage goes so low that Invertr drops it and refuses to charge batteries

But please buy the genuine one the duplicated ones do not have setpoints and cheap relays and fail on heavy duty loads

My Ipower 5 kva's have been running with twp AVS30 without any issues ( i see regularly 250/255V in Night during rainy days as the tarfo is lightly loaded )
Satellite TV Technology / Re: Solar Energy, A Complement To FTA by dejidotun2000(m): 6:34am On Mar 21
Thanks for the insights
NiyiOmoIyunade:
Depends on which FETs blew up. Many factors can make them blow apart from the ones you already suspect - overload because a too large load was not isolated off the inverter, short circuit due to wiring errors or mains/Gen backfeed e.t.c e.t.c

All I was trying to say is that he should do the minimum to establish the real root cause before he starts spending money to solve the wrong problem e.g use a multimeter to read the Gen voltage and see if it is too high or normal range. If the Gen voltage with no load on it is within 200 to 230volts AC then it definitely was not high voltage that spoilt the inverter but rather perhaps a wiring issue or short circuit or backfeed.

Wiring issues or short circuits may be easily identified by placing a suitable sized AC circuit breaker (MCB) on the inverter output - if the breaker trips when changing over from inverting to mains/Gen then you know you have a wiring problem or shortcircuit or overload problem to deal with.


Satellite TV Technology / Re: Solar Energy, A Complement To FTA by dejidotun2000(m): 9:50pm On Mar 20
Many thanks sir.

We are not certain that the FETs were blown up by the generator the first time and high mains voltage the second time.

What else might have caused the FETs to blow up ?

NiyiOmoIyunade:


If he is sure that the cause of the FETs blowing is actually 'high mains voltage' then he could buy a voltage regulation device like the Sollatek AVS 30 (attached pic). It has things you can turn inside it (I bow to my Oga Makavele grin ) to adjust both the low and high voltage cutoff points. The device costs 8,500 for the 'fake' and about 17k for a better version sold at 'Game stores'

Thanks

Satellite TV Technology / Re: Solar Energy, A Complement To FTA by dejidotun2000(m): 7:01pm On Mar 20
Hello people.

I need your help on this one.

A friend's Genus 1.5kva proton Q inverter spectacularly blew up FETs in December.
he had put on his 3.5kva generator (which he had previously used several times to charge the inverter batteries) and heard multiple explosions and saw the proverbial smoke.

The inverter was repaired and recently, the FETs blew up again. He believes it was a result of high voltage from his public utility transformer because he changed from a phase that had a low voltage to another phase before he heard the FETs blowing up.

please what can be done to prevent the incident from happening again ?

Thanks for your answers.
Satellite TV Technology / Re: Solar Energy, A Complement To FTA by dejidotun2000(m): 12:02pm On Feb 24
It depends on your load.
If you panels are supplying 4A @ 24V, that's 96Watts.
Let's say your load is 100W, the panels will supply the 96W and the extra 4W will be taken from your battery.
In essence, your battery isn't charging.
Note that the self consumption of your inverter wasn't factored into the analysis.
davodyguy:
Hello chief niyi and Dmerciful

It rained heavily last night and the effect is seen on the sun right now, very poor now in Lagos

My Panel is sending 3-4Amp to the batteries.

I want to use the inverter now and still allow the Panels to continue to charge. My question is if I load the batteries now, will the load be on the batteries by draining them or it would be like normal electricity that charges batteries and also supplies power without depleting my batteries?

I hope you get my question

Good morning Gazzuz.

Do you have any experience with Mitsubishi GDI engines, specifically the 4G93.

A friend owns one that seems to have a failed high pressure pump( fuel pressure as obtained from a diagnostic tool drops from 4.7mpa to 0 and engine stalls whenever you rapidly rev the engine).

Thanks.

Many thanks sir.
Can you recommend a competent technician to handle the repair ?
makavele:


Sh!t happens and electronics can just go kaboom for no good reason.
But you need to give it to a seasoned electrician , , ,
Do not attempt to change the Fets on your own . . because in most causes;
the shorted Fets creates a short inside the gates . . and this damages
the circuitry that drives the gates . . .
Change the all mosfets and connect the inverter;
and you will hear another kaboom ; back to square one.

N.B.: Be careful when you handle circuit boards that contain capacitors; they can store power high enough
to deliver a fatal electric shock; even when they are powered off (especially when the unit was just disconnected; without discharging
the capacitors)
Satellite TV Technology / Re: Solar Energy, A Complement To FTA by dejidotun2000(m): 3:37pm On Dec 18, 2017
The inverter was not being backfed. It was installed about 3 years ago and no modifications have been made to the wiring/connection since then.
Braaad:
Could you post a connection diagram,
that would help to determine if you were mistakenly back feeding the inverter.

The inverter being the only load on generator is not the cause of mos tube damage.

Satellite TV Technology / Re: Solar Energy, A Complement To FTA by dejidotun2000(m): 9:00am On Dec 18, 2017
Good morning house.

A friend put on his 5kva generator and switched on the change-over switch with the inverter being the only load on the generator.
He heard spectacular explosions and smoke from the inverter.
About 6 FETs are obviously damaged, the rest are also shorted.

Did the damage have anything to do with the fact that the inverter was the only load on the generator ?

Will replacing all the FETs bring the inverter back to life/Could any other components have been damaged besides the FETs ?

Thanks everyone.

Data sheets give you values other than at STC.

makavele:


Cos those are factory-based under STC which don't apply to real life . . .
Take for example, a battery spec sheet might tell you to charge your battery to 14.1V for optimum performance
And you might be living where you do not have enough sun-hours to float your battery.
What do you do? Increase bulk charge to say, 14.6 and let it smoke . . .
** and for those who might want to argue, it's called "max smoke" in the solar world & perfectly safe***
By the time the sun goes down; you would be closer to 100% SOC
If you seem to be smoking too much, reduce to 14.4 and try again . .
no battery spec sheet will tell you this.
so forget what the spec sheets say, they are theoritical and meant as guides
throw it away, and face real conditions applicable to you and you only.
