Passes Thru 1 Megawatt...


Recommended Posts

Love to hear a success story ;-).  My house inverter (well, the current iteration of it!) has gone through 1,123kWH over 4,206 hours.  Part of the problem of being a designer is that I keep upgrading the equipment, and lose my records as I do that.

 

Any feature requests/ideas I should possibly consider?

Passed thru 4800 hours on the meter overnight...

2 megawatt hours is going to be a while as we transition from hot to cold..

Burning less than 10kwh per day right now...

 

No suggestions come to mind...

 

Hoping you have success in turning GS into a long-term, viable company...

Your 6k is a ****ton better than the Sigineer I had online previously...

(I had to supplement it with a couple of HF inverters to keep it from rebooting constantly.)

And, I still haven't repaired the 12k of their's that blew up after a week...

(Only done minor mods to reduce our loads...)

Sigineer constantly rebooting??  Was this due to overload?  (I know the GS doesn't redline EXACTLY at 6kw)

Rumor has it that Aims / Sigineer (and related rebrands) "aren't as reliable as you might think."  From the photos I've seen of the internals of a 15kw Yiyen inverter, I'm not surprised to hear that their 12kw blew up.  Heck, it's a PJ inverter with better software and a better transformer.  Same lousy imbalanced FET drive...which simply isn't up to the task.

It's a lot of work, for sure.  But that's our goal.

Obviously, as with any new design, there have been a couple "teething" issues, and several customers have had issues with the control board power supply--but all in all, it's been a very valuable learning experience to make the latest control boards even better.
