Pv + micro-inverters = heat DHW ...

Unread Messageby chris34 » 16/07/18, 15:48

Hello,
Yes ..... I know, it is not very standard to heat water with PV, but, I am in isolated site, with some panels (1,5 Kwc), and I have a very small cumulus (30 L). In short, currently I warmly warm my cumulus with my prod. from the panels (via batterries, and via programmable switch, so that during the day). Precision, in order to extend the heating time, I converted, before the cumulus 230 V 115 V, which allows me to draw 4 times less power in a moment T. Well, all this works really well, but today, I would like to disconnect the heating cumulus batterries, putting, for example 2 PV connected to micro-inverters themselves connected directly to the transformer. 230 / 115 V.
My question: is it better to do
A) PV + micro inverters 230 V + transformer 230 / 115 V + cumulus ECS
Ou
B) PV + micro inverters 115 V + cumulus ECS

Easy, no ???? : Lol:

Thanks in advance !!!! : Mrgreen:

Attention, it is not possible to connect "standard" micro-inverters to a resistor without battery or network.
Indeed, they do not have the possibility to adjust their output power when the input power decreases.
The result will be very disappointing.

You should go through this subject.

For example this model unearthed by xboxman4 adjusts its output voltage between 10 and 240V to vary the power supplied to the water heater.

Hello,
Go through a micro-inverter and a transformer to power a resistance is a lot of unnecessary losses. The best is to adapt the resistance to the PVs. What are the characteristics of the PV and the balloon? is it steatite resistance?

For the ball, it is enough to know the power in 230 V and for the PVs, nominal voltage and power?

Gaston, is it standard M215? https://enphase.com/fr-fr/produits/micro-onduleurs

Have reason to believe does not mean that we have reason to believe.

From what I see, it's an inverter for injection, so it will not work off-grid.

with a PVrouter it must be possible to do things if the inverter is sufficiently "clean" (pure sine) to allow synchronization of the miro-inverter
