Charging from a split gs inverter setup?


Recommended Posts

Sid, You know my system.  I just got my slave back up and was looking at the status page, and was thinking, the slave is showing it has the AC in from the master.  can the slave possbly be able to charge the battery bank it is on from the master by chance?  Such as if I got the master tied to the main grid it is charging it battery bank while the slave is puling power from teh master to charge it self.  I would love if it could and during the day if I'm getting a full charge on the master, I would love it to send power to the slave to charge that bank to get it level up from the web page if I could click a button to enable charging mode.  Si nce right now I have the Lead batts on the master and the slave is running off of lyf4 batts at the moment, its going to have the largest bank due to its the one that will be supply most of what the house runs off, the master is basicly the kitchen unit and the 240 l1 loads.

Not possible unless you don't mind losing the 240v "split-sync" functionality.  Yes, the slave inverter is seeing the AC input from the master--but it is syncing 180 degrees out of phase to provide 240v across L1 / L2 to your breaker panel.  A pass-thru (as required for charge) will have no offset, resulting in 0v across L1 / L2.
