My inverter seems to be producing too high a voltage when solar input increases, causing the system to shut down and re-cycle many times during the day. I do not see fluctuations in the grid voltage wwhen...

yes there is a voltage regulator of an electronic kind .
I suggest the inverter is well ventilated( if not) and not positioned in direct sun light and shaded as inverters do get quite hot their function better when kept cooler

Kubota GL11000 Diesel generator starts out delivering 120 volts, and within a few minutes will drop down and stay at 90 volts. Any ideas?

Is there an auto/man switch? Try both ways, just to see if the problem is in the auto controller. I believe on man it runs at high speed all the time, on auto only when it senses load. So, if the inverter doesn't draw, it backs off.

I have a Xantrex 2400-12 two years old, installed off grid in a vacation home in Mexico, a service call is not an option. The inverter quit working, flashes "888" and shuts off. I have a trace...

First off I am not in this for the money. If your not satisfied with the information below simply reject the solution so that you can hear from other experts.

The 888 flashing is telling you that the inverter has lost DC power momentarily. This can be from broken strands in the battery cables or an internal wiring problem in the inverter. Check the battery cables for corrosion. Remove the terminals check for battery post corrosion and visually inspect each bable to terminal connection from the battery connector to the inverter DC Power connections.
Here is something to keep in mind. A DC power cable only needs one tiny strand of wire to indicate voltage on a meter. However, if there is any load on the AC side that tiny strand of wire that is giving you the proper DC reading may in fact drop well below 10.5 V DC and simply cause the unit to automatically shut off even with no load.

Why does my dr3624 only put out 98 vac, its rated at 120 vac? i'm off grid and my batteries are new 24 volt

Are you using a true-RMS voltmeter to measure the DR's output? The DR's output is modified sine wave, and a cheap average reading AC voltmeter will give you a reading of 90 volts or so. Alternately, if you have an oscilloscope, you can verify that the modified sine wave is around 170V peak to peak. It should alternate in segments of -170, 0, +170, 0... The duty cycle and peak voltages will vary with the inverter load.

Fis\rst of all is the inverter supplying 120 VAC? when turned on?. If so the inverter seems to be working.I think your problem is in the truck alternator/charging system. The inverter is independent of this charger..

please check the voltage your generator is supplying to the to the inverter because a high voltage and frequency can make the relays in the inverter to make clicking sounds,and also do not allow your inverter batteries to run completely low before you charge it
