Hi this 5 year old inverter keeps 'tripping' our solar power system...light says under current also says over current at other times...the batteries are fully charged...there is no extra load...it has been working fine but has suddenlt started to fail...any ideas?

    We have a Vector 600w inverter and have used it with our solar system for years in winter and summer. How long should they last?

My Xantrex GT2.8-AU-QC-230 Solar power tripped the Inverter AC Isolator to off during a storm.


IF your inverter failed due to an electrical or weather related event then you need to have it serviced and you need to make an insurance claim if it is not under warranty.

How do i convert my 1.2kw solar inverter on my roof so i can run my home on stored energy ?


Solar panels produce DC voltage.
some solar panels have the inverter integrated into each solar panel.
I would suggest contacting a local solar panel supplier and asking them if they could add a Battery Charging System to the Solar panels you use. An then what sort of inverter to add to the bank of batteries.
An inverter converts DC voltage to AC voltage to use in the grid.
The AC voltages and DC voltages involved have the possiblity to kill if you much around with electricity.

What kind of solar panel would i need to power a grundorf jp 5


It depends on many factors. What is your geographical location, in very hot climate generally poly panels do a little better and you need to match your charge controllers input with the solar panels. sometimes for small systems big panels with higher current ratings do not do well.

Grunaire unit trips breaker immediately when we try to reset it.


very likely a defective compressor. while there are other things that could cause the tripping, 90% of time it will be the compressor. generally, it will not be cost effective to repair the system if it is.

Hi I have 2 inverters on my house each with 21 pannels. normally 1 puts out around 3500w and the other around 3100 during the peak of the day. lately however 1 is only putting out only 600w during the peak...


The inverter will only make AC at a rate per the current and voltage being supplied by the solar panels. The panel outputs need to be checked and compared to the panels that are working correctly.

It certainly sounds as if there is a power distribution problem from the panels supplying the 3100 W average output inverter. It can be anything from a corroded terminal to a damaged umbilical or anything in between.
A bad ground for the inverter will also limit output. It may read resistance / continuity but can not carry the amount of current needed to produce 3100 W output. Given it has only been 5 days the problem should not be hard to isolate and find.
I had a similar problem arise quite recently with an 18 panel system and the problem ended up being corrosion on a terminal block connection. Cleaned up the terminals and reconnected everything with a 2155W difference from the original output on a 3200W inverter system.

Thanks for using FixYa.

the solar panel is just to charge your inverter,if it is charging and the inverter is on it will drain the current the solar panel is supplying to the batteries,this makes it look like it is not charging ,so i advice you to switch off you inverter when charging it,get another set of batteries connected to your solar panel then charge both, let them be separated so that the new one is not in use so that when solar is out you can switch to the other set of batteries

200AMP Breaker trips same time every night


Something doesn't sound right here. You indicate 2 200Amp breakers. With a single service entering the house, this is not possible. The "sub-panel" to the pool house is more likely a 100Amp setup, yes? If not, you have a bad setup and it should be corrected. I would suspect that you are attempting to pull too much current to the pool and that is what is tripping the breaker. Also, these breakers should not be run over about 80% of their capacity for the long haul. If they are, they tend to age and get either real sensitive causing tripping when it shouldn't or you can run 500Amps through it and it won't trip.

My suggestion is to revisit the setup. If the pool house is fed from the main panel, make sure that the breaker for it is not 200Amp. Second, try disabling the pool house breaker to see if that is the source of the problem and look more closely there.

Keep us posted.

Solar panels come in different ranges of wattages.Add up the wattage of different solar panels you get e.g. Ten 100W solar panels will give you a 1Kw solar system.
