This one even thinks he did me a favor by doing the installation for me. He said he charges more than he charged me.

He’s also a family friend, so there’s limit to how I can express my displeasure in his character and whatever rubbish he installed in my house that’s not working properly. I’m not expected to complain too much, since he charged me 10k less, according to him.

“How much you pay gan sef…” Those where his words

Lol tell him you'd add his 10k let him correct it

I know this is on short notice,

But I'd need someone experienced to come along for an energy audit by 10am tomorrow in Port Harcourt (Olu Obasanjo Rd).

For a 10/20Kv system.

So what is actually needed.

There is an existing system, Su Kam 30kv 360v inverter with 30 225ah batteries and panels with Tristar controllers (not working)

They need to

1. Be moved to a new location or

2. A quotation made for a new system at the new location with the old one decommissioned.

odimbannamdi:

Please, how can this be resolved? Is earthing really the issue and what can we do? Also, what is likely to have spoilt in the inverter? I just weak...something wey I no even charge them, based on hobby and relationship waka, i now lost a precious inverter... embarassed

earthrealm:


Also had tha t issue sometime ago, 2 inverters died within 6months, after the 2nd death i told owner to do a new earthing just for the inverter, as i suspected the shared earthing had voltage leakage....going to 6months now everything is working ok. consider doing this or dont hook up to earthing at all and observe

I complained about my hybrid recently

It started misbehaving the moment I connected it to charge from grid.

Since I removed that it has been okay.
I'm suspecting earthing too because when it was connected the body was "shocking"

odimbannamdi:


Please, how did they do do a new dedicated earthinh for the inverter? Also, how can I NOT hook it up to earthing at all? I can't see any useful videos on Youtube

Interested in this too.
And the cost

Please who repairs inverters in Port Harcourt?

I have this Transformer based inverter that's been installed somewhere a couple of years now.

Yesterday, I was told the lights started flickering and they were seeing a red glow like something burning inside the inverter (no smell though).

earthrealm:


thats a fault situation.
disconnect it from battery either by turning of the battery supply breaker or manually disconnecting one of the battery terminals for about 30secs to 350secs and reconnect

Thank you. I did that it seems to be working normally this morning.

Juror:


If you have a PV breaker, you could trip it first then the battery, otherwise you could've done it at night when there wasn't any solar input.
And if you don't have a PV breaker you should introduce one.

Thank you.
the inverter was still showing solar charging by 9pm cheesy
I just turned everything off though then turned them back on this morning.

It's done this once some weeks back when I connected it to grid to charge I'm suspecting the fault is from there so I disconnected the grid connection too as I barely use that.
Satellite TV Technology / Re: Solar Energy, A Complement To FTA by gadgetplanetng: 9:30pm On Nov 25, 2022
Help Needed

I have an Axpert (Easun 3kv Hybrid inverter).

It normally goes off in the evening when the sun is out but till now today (almost 9pm) its still showing solar charging and the fan is on.

Has anyone experienced this?
Is there anyway to reset this type of inverter?
Would it be OK to turn off the battery breaker so it goes off and maybe starts normally in the morning (I know they usually say everything must be disconnected before battery)?

My Solar community I greet you all from my Lunar abode.
Help me to celebrate my 6years journey into use of solar energy. It started in the year 2016 with 2x150AH 12V SMF LA Ba3s which were decommissioned in the year 2020 following decline in storage capacity. Currently running on 2x100AH 12V LIFEPO4 Ba3s courtesy @Juo,which started 2years ago and today celebrating 2years of use.I must say Lunar energy is sweet as I run all equipment completely offgrid.........
Posterity will not forgive me,if I fail to commend all who had contributed in humongous amounts the knowledge acquired via this space. All I have learnt is from here,even though it had started working on electronics and electricity from a tender age. I do every connections my self and I give kudos to all here both online and offline for the wealth of knowledge........
All I can say is taste and see.........

Any changes in your LiFePo4 capacity after 2 years?

Finally here to seek advice on this solar installation. I hv a plan to have 3.5kva or 5kva solar to power my house. I will like a neat and compact sizing hence am looking at going for the lithium battery.
Hoping to power 55inches smart tv , 394 liter Samsung refrigerator, 7 led light , 3 rechargeable fan .
I will like to start using the solar but which comes first as i intend to start without panels but will buy the panel along the line and build up .

Pls i need advice on the way around this thing .

Thanks

How long do you need to keep these things on? TV? Fridge?
That matters since no solar, then check the back of the TV and back (or inside door) of the fridge how many watts on the sticker.

Or if you use prepaid, how many units do you consume in a day/month?

Post those, experienced people here would be able to help.

I've gotten a lot of help from here too.

If All your life the qualified technicians are destroying your properties. I will advice you to fix your stuffs yourself.

Read to understand.

2 examples isn't all, My cars sound like new with years of use and the people I use know what they are doing because now I take time to get basic understanding of whatever I want to get myself into.

That way, I can easily detect anyone who wants to bullshit me with technical terms. I pay competent people more than they ask for my mechanics leave everything and come to my place if I call because they know that.

Most charlatans come with plenty English and fancy packaging.

You need to have an idea what you're doing to see through that.

When I got a Peugeot brand new in 2008 I used SCOA for servicing and repairs.

When the car had fuel pump issues about 4 years in it was someone here on nairaland that solved it for me, they parked my car for months after I gave them money that could have been used for another car.

Google them.

In 2020 I took a car for respray to a fancy place in GRA close to Mandela car wash.

They took the car apart and it never was the same when they put it back together, the door caught fire 2 weeks later because of bad connections they made.

If you know PH you'd know the place, it's not cheap in any way.

I can go on an on

in Nigeria (abroad too), most charlatans come with plenty English and fancy packaging.

You need to have an idea what you're doing to see through that.

Don't jump in and assume what you're not sure of it reeks of arrogance and ignorance.

In some cases read and scroll

I'm sure it was qualified technicians that destroyed @firethesun roof

Probably you are using cheap technicians, they bill u less and they help u save moni by using shortcuts and cheap materials. You could try other qualified technicians out there,they don't come cheap.

Looooool stay in your lane at your own risk.

I'd pay professionals but I like to know what they are doing biko.

I'm the one spending

That's how anytime I get a new car they tell me to remove thermostat and put double cell radiator when it's part of what kills engines fast here.

ceaser:

Few days ago, had a mechanic work to replace a stripped alternator belt that made battery charging poor. After office hours and tired from the day's work, I just paid him, jumped into the car and drove off.

25 kilometers later and rather too late, I noticed the temp gauge had almost risen to max and steam coming out from under the hood so I interrupted the trip to allow for cooling. Reason for this nonsense is that the mecho had pulled off the plug supply to the radiator fan and so I reconnected it. Refilling the radiator, I noticed the gasket was blown already.

So much for a 15 minutes change of alternator belt.

Some years ago I started my car and it caught fire

Why?

Trusted mechanic didn't plug in engine fuel supply hose properly after working so it disconnected during the day and poured fuel on the hot engine when I tried to start it.

If I had known and double checked what he did would have noticed it and avoided that trauma.

I'm alive today is God's grace

"Stay in your lane" encourages ignorance which doesn't help anybody even the experts were not born with the wisdom, they made mistakes and learnt.

With the way the average professionals behave it's better we learn.

I know what I went through in the hands of "expert" mechanics till I started learning about cars.

Same thing with solar.

If we stopped trying after falling the first time learning to walk as babies we won't ever walk.

He made a mistake, let him learn.

A professional probably suggested that "mppt" for him.



Oshomo12:
If you are a lawyer, stick to the law, doctor, stick to medicine, and most especially if you don't know anything about electricity, dc/ac, stay clear of solar DIY. If you don't love yourself, don't risk the life of your loved ones. How much do you think you are saving by touching what you have no idea of? That was a very expensive mistake.
Well, life is so cheap in Nigeria.

I just blew my inverter sef, the 48 volt somehow blew my inverter, I hope it's the fuse and not something else. I will go and get a felicity charge controller Tomorrow.

The battery to 48v or cc setting to 48v?

I don't know how to set the charge controller.

It's all connected in parallel, 24v 200w x 6 in parallel

If the cc is real mppt then increase the incoming voltage.
2s3p like somoeone said

24v panels are roughly 40v.

When he's ready if needed he'd upgrade it, he already upgraded the inverter.
