Truth like what fire the sun said,
In solar always think big and ahead. You are going to expand definitely. Buy gadjets that give room for expansion.

Solar side genearation should be large or have room for expansion. (Mppt).

Battery big enough to weather this present raining season.during rain solar generation can tank. But with adequate battery you are ok.

Inverter also this depends on how big your battery bank and solar array is... If you have a big solar array /battery bank/large inverter watch the sky open.

Thanks to everyone in house , the upgrade went well.
The only device in my house I couldn't power was my air conditioner.
I expanded my solar array from 2 to 3 arrays,

Being that it has been discussed on the this thread how inverter ac were not meeting up to expectations not cooling well. I looked at the cost of changing my normal ac to inverter ac. O boy I shook. I changed route more solar panels and a bigger inverter.

I can confidently say as of 10am in the morning my 1.5hp normal ac as been pumping, with other loads and water heater simultaneously.
The sky is just opening.

Will prowse YouTube, will always say let's add more panels, whether on the roof or on the bare ground that guy will place panels everywhere.and it is true the more you generate the more self sufficient you become.

FireTheSun:


To be honest, l am not a fan of separate Charge Controller and Inverter.
I dont even consider it a cheaper option, in the long run.

Some say it gives them control over their PV aspect of their setup but it is like someone choosing a Manual gear Drive over and Automatic Gear Drive in a Car! When l bought my first Automatic gear Car in year 2000, all my friends said l am "mad" as l wont have "firm control" over the Car. about three years later`, following my experience, they are all converts of Automatic gear.

I think if you use a Hybrid Inverter, it is cheaper than buying them separate, it saves you money of cabling of the two separately and the hybrid has an efficient way of managing the two together and with more advanced Hybrids in the market, they have become more reliable and have large Charging Current range.

But since you have bought the MPPT Controller already, l will suggest you not restrict yourself to that small Inverter, if funds will allow, buy something like 1.5KVA, Pure Sine Wave Inverter, these things get obsolete, very quickly, in terms of your requirement .in the nearest future.
Sorry for the late response.

The late response is no problems at all. As a matter of fact, I was just about going for the inverter and I thought I should check here one last time.

You got me smiling. I hope your buddies bought you a bottle of wine for showing them the road?

I must say that I'm caught in the same net as your friends on this inverter choice. I see a couple of people here saying the separate setup is better than the hybrid inverter for the fact that once the hybrid is faulty, everything goes out the window but for the separate setup, you can still salvage either of both CC and the inverter. Although, I considered the chances of both the separate setup also getting faulty at the same time - or even worse. I decided to JUMP on the bandwagon of "team separate" o.

I'm actually going for the 1.6KVA Pure Sine Wave. Wanted to go for the 2000w but the CC specification says it should not go beyond 1440w (which I believe I still have gone against if I go for this 1.6KVA) or you will have to buy either two 60A CC or an 80A which this particular seller does not have. I guess this is where the hybrid outplays this "manual" setup cheesy auto detection and adjustment and less cumbersome. I do not intend to use it for more than the things I have listed. In fact, when the time comes for upgrades, I'm just going to overhaul everything if I have familiarized myself with one or two about solar energy.

Thanks for the time and advice Sir. I honestly do appreciate it.

But is there anything else you think I might need besides these?
Re: Solar Energy, A Complement To FTA by JUO(m): 10:11pm On Apr 25
FireTheSun:



For a Hybrid Inverter, you might want to consider this 3KVA Hybrid Product from Gennex Technologies.

https://shop.gennextechnologies.com/product-category/inverters/

There is Certainty that their Products are Original, What you are buying is Original and you are not bothered or worried whether what you have is a lemon or just stuck with a "label".
Their 3KVA Hybrid @#220K is a good choice, in my own opinion
It can work without battery and has a factor of 1 (energy loss is almost Zero and it is a high Voltage Inverter that can take Panels to almost twice its capacity)

I use their 5KVA Hybrid Inverter and am about to. even Upgrade it to 8KVA, so l can go off the Grid completely.
It is very, very rugged and they are currently doing "SALES".
Their Panels are Original, "Canadian Solar", expensive but the best, in the market.
I have 9KW of those Canadian Solar Panels on my Roof right now.

The choice of LiFePo4 Cells offered by @Valto is a a good one.
You will need to buy a Daly BMS, say 8S, 100A (I am not sure if he has that in Store right now) or from China. (AliExpress)
And we can all guide you on how to set it up here.


Caveat: I am an End User like you so, l am speaking from the POV f a User. I dont sell anything.
gennex na scam. Company dumped me. Fixed my bad inverter and it didn't work at 100k. Returned it for proper check they billed me another 130k. Use them at your own risk. Better get another brand of Hybrid

Waoh!
I feel for you, on your bad experience with Gennex technologies.
Can you give us more details on how your Inverter went bad? What was damaged in it and what caused it?

What are you paying all these money for (#230K ! Is that for just repairs?), when the 5KVA VMIII inverter itself costs just about #395K or so ? (cant remember exactly how much l bought mine) .

I have friends who have been using their Inverters for over two years now, mine is about a Year old and not for once did it have any issue, despite the abuse l have put mine through because it was DIY all the way!
I have had Inverters (non-hybrid) in the past and the experience was not good but the current generation of Genex VMIII Hybrid Inverters are very rugged and all the reviews l have read so far, have given it very high marks.

And their response have been wonderful even as l bought all my Panels from them as well and these are very high end Canadian Panels (595W) x15. They were very supportive during the installation, despite the fact that they were not the ones that l chose to install it (Company Price!).

Anyway, I can imagine the stress you went through, What is beyond Six, is more than Seven, as they say

This is interesting. Price is good. I doubt even DIY will be much cheaper than this. Will the house recommend or it's not worth the risk

Only thing is the reputation of felicity to not pass capacity test.
I am very interested however. Will you allow a capacity test? If you can or if there's a way to verify the capacity, I could get this from you.

Is there a way to connect to the BMS and see the state of each cell?
Also, what cell configuration is giving 15kwh

Sorry, I have plenty questions.

Hello gurus, I’m planning on getting a lithium battery powerbank 500watt inverter with 120,000mah lithium battery inbuilt … i was told it can be charged via 18v 200watt solar panel

My question is that, will it be a good buy Also does it mean a 12v solar panel can not charge it…. Also if I decide to switch my solar panel to lead acid battery with 12v inverter, can the 18v solar panel charge the lead acid 12v battery ??


…….

Re: Solar Energy, A Complement To FTA by kiekie1(m): 1:16am On Apr 26

Re: Solar Energy, A Complement To FTA by olopan(m): 6:18am On Apr 26
Let's assume your budget no dey shift and again your looking to make your equipments future upgradeable and expandable

1. A 3KVA 24V Hybrid Inverter - @Iygeal has one at dirty cheap price, being a season member, i am sure some months of performance can be guaranteed 180,000 ....... Future expansion compactible

2. 300W solar panels x 4 pieces for basic, 1800W is needed ideally while considering efficiency of solar panels and your loads been active 232,000 ... Or you can try the Tokunbo panels, if you into it. ....... Future expansion compactible

3. Flooded lead 12V 220Ah battery with 2 year warranty (Different varieties abound) - 240,000

At this stage now, you approximately have 48,000 or less

4. Battery rack, Solar PV cables, AC cable (shorter distance <5 yards, roof sealant, aluminum profile, mounting accessories all should finish the balance

5. With no "balance of system" i.e. SPD, circuit breaker, et. cetera needed are not yet considered

6. With a service charge for your installer and transport from your seller to your abode.

IMHO, you will need more than 700k to complete this job, but then again if you can mount or do it all yourself ......... then you save at lot of cash.

BTW a more cheaper option is to swap the inverter to hybrids like schneider electric 1500VA with PWM inbuilt controller, it will free up some cash for you, but it is not really future load expandable but you will at least have power at the needed time which is now.

Mykeolinks:
Good day to all the bosses in the house. I really want to appreciate the selfless contributions on this page thus far. I've gotten to a point where I need to delve into DIY solar power generation. Please I'd like to be guided with what my 700k budget can get for me for starters...I intend to go into solar fully but I want to start with this budget. Like for starters I'd be needing it to power 2 ceiling fans, charging of phones, a decoder, charging of a laptop. TVs and others can come in in subsequent upgrades.
Thanks as I eargerly anticipate responses

You have to use the Seperate input on the inverter.

If your string exceed the PV rating on one of the inverter, you can move part of the PV power to another inverter.

Let's assume you are to work or using this device as the owner designed it i.e. laptop, phone charging, DC fans, lights then you can get it for a solar journey but anything more than then it is not a good buy, because the storage is small i.e. looking like a 30Ah battery

and YES! the 200W panel if used together with this will serve you in the future when used with a 100Ah lead battery

Re: Solar Energy, A Complement To FTA by NiyiOmoIyunade(m): 1:51pm On Apr 26
I have used both JBD and JK BMS - JBD BMS were originally targeted at medical devices so quite rugged build quality and plenty fail safe features built in.

If you want a pro product with plenty flexibility, ability to talk to inverters via RS485, up to 2A active balancing then choose the JK BMS - if you have multiple BMSs in your battery bank the JK also switches between BMSs far better and smoother than JBD.

I say the JK BMS is a pro product because it does not forgive wiring mistakes and also needs a special procedure to wake up the BMS - once you can handle these two aspects you are set to go forever.

Seplos too is a good BMS with active balancer and comms but very failure prone in real life use (we are told there is a bad batch with defective parts released into the market)

I would rank the Dalys and ANTs of this world behind all these BMSs above - typically these cost more and are more quirky but I have yet to see any reason to choose them over a JK or JBD BMS for example.

I have attached screenshots from my JK BMS (current favorite) and JBD BMS respectively - as you can see they each achieve good results and keep your pack happy - the JK is the better value product of the two in my opinion.
