The Blind Wolf Posted March 16, 2021 Share Posted March 16, 2021 Most folks who are new, don't know what type of Wire Size for each voltage is really recommended for each VDC. I know Sid has pointed out that the Bolts on the 6K GS inverters are reated for 500A. The question becomes on what size wire for each voltage level is best to use for a GS inverter, running under a full Load? Keep in mind, the battery wires are not the determing factor in your inverter getting the power it needs, its the wire from the bus bar, to the GS that determins if your gs is getting all it needs. However, if you undersize your battery wires for the amps the battery is able to give, it can reduce the power and cause heating of the wires. Also, having a bus bar with say 10 24Vdc battery bank will not likely heat up any of the wires, as the draw from each battery is devided by which battery has the most power to give on the top end. However, if your only useing 3 24Vdc batter bank, and each bank is only able to output 100A at 24v. you going to run into several issue if you load up your GS 6K inverter, as at 6K, you will at least need 300A to handle that load, and thats not even accouning the surge load and how far is the battery to the inverter. For example, I was useing a 6K gopower inverter, and it was at 12Vdc. I was useing 0/3 Awg and at that the inverter had two postive and Neg, and so I was useing four 0/3 awg wires that was bigger then the wire coming into my house. at 12Vdc 6K I was pully 600A during the day when the AC, Freezers and other stuff was running on the Box truck while out in 100 F weather, with Four Batts, a 300 A Alternator and a Generator to boot. for a 24FT box truck. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
