I have a 3000 watt inverter,with 3 plug in outlet..how much power do I get from 1 outlet..this equipment is hook to 6 12 volt battery charge by a 60amp controller and 3 solar panel of 265watt each???


You didn't mention what make or model of inverter. Lets assume you are in the USA and your inverter has standard the US 15 Amp three pin 125V NEMA 5-15 AC outlets. based simply on that you would have a max of 125 x 15 = 1875 watts per outlet.

Why do the fuses blow out every time I plug it in


watts divided by volts equal amps so 400watts devided by 12 volts equal 33 plus amps if wires and fuses wont handle 35 amps they will blow to keep from burning up the wiring of your vehicle

I have solar panels that put out a little more voltage then they are rated at,and they keep faulting out my grid tie inverter.I need a resister to knock down the voltage about 8 volts, got any ideas?


I like to ask, is the voltage from the solar panel messure with some load connected or is open circuit, normally solar panels produce high voltage than the working system, the reasson for that is to have Amperes in of to charge the batery, these is related to the size and power generated by the panel.
No need a resistor or in any case use a voltage regulator to prevent over charge.

Wattage use


Your calculations is correct - 220 X 0.7 = 154 watts.
If your fridge only runs on 220 volts then you need solar panels that charge 12 volt lead acid batteries and then use a inverter to convert 12 volts DC to 220 volts AC.

Test for charging


take a voltage indicator, and put the wires of the tool on the batery. each wire one each pole of the batery. Black to black, red to red. Turn on the engine, and increase the idle speed until aprox. 6000 rpm. the voltage indicator should indicate voltage from aprox. 12 Volts to aprox 15 volts. if the volt are not increasing with the engine rpm, is mostly a charging relay issue.
At the idle speed, the voltmeter should indicate minimum 12,5 -13 volts. If not, the same issue.
The test should be made with the battery charged and in great working condition.

How long to charge battery?


bateries have their own specifications.You can read it on the label.But,most of all it must be charge from 12-15 hrs. on its very first charging ( for a new battery) and later on or for the second time and so on, you may charge it 2 to 4 hrs.,sometimes 8 hrs..Leting you know,a battery can be charge even a short span of time,for example is 30 minutes only.In that 30 minutes try to measure its stored volt using a volt meter or a multi-tester,and the result is laready 12 volts (if your batery is 12 volts.)do you believe that? YES.! because a battery is so easy to store power.But,the problem is that its so easy to drain its stored power.You know why?because the current or amper of the baterry is still weak that the given specification.,.So,for short explanation,the longer time you charge your batery equals the longer time to drain the power.For example: when you charge the batery within 4 hours,thus the batery will be drained after 4 hours.
