Burnt out Hi, Victron 3000 watt combi inverter charger found completely burnt out on narrowboat. Connected to shoreline and four 113 ah batteries. protected by 300A fuse on DC side and RCDs and MCBs an AC side. Shoreline input voltage currently reading 248 - 266 volts. No fuses or circuit breakers gone/tripped, but unit has been on fire. Has worked perfectly well for last eight months with no problems whatsoever. No loose wires or obvious external/fitting faults. Any ideas? Cheers, Andy

Internal failure possibly on power side, lower than 300A fault current so unit could not trip i/p protection and as fault was post ac section, continued to burn internally.
it just broke
no breakers tripped out so it kept drawing current until the fault burnt away.


maybe this is what happened, need to know a lot more info to change hypothisis

How many 12v batteries are needed to run a 15000w inverter properly


It is normal to use only half of the capacity of a battery and this is called 50% depth of discharge (DOD) so the watts of a battery is volt X amp hours eg a 12 volt bat @ 200 AH would be 2400 watts but you can only use half of that other wise the battery will be stuffed, so all you have is 1200 watts, if you have a 400 AH battery you would have 2400 watts, you also have to know the capacity of the battery and this is call the C rating of the battery once you have that you can work out how many hours it will run for.
On an of grid system I would not use any less than 6oo to 700 AH @ C100
It is normal to size the batters to energy demand in KWHrs per day of (AC load )
Hope this help.

De inverter switches off indicating low Batteries while according to my monitor ( xantrex charge ) battery bank is 100%. How can I help help it?


use a voltmeter and measure the voltage AT THE INVERTER'S Battery terminals and see if its over 11 volts. You could have a loose connection or a bad cable creating a voltage loss.

HOW MANY WATTS DOES THIS MACHINE HAVE IM TRYING TO USE A 1440 WATTS INVERTER AND 24 V BATTERY ITS FAILING TO INITIALIZE??


With a 1440 watt and 12 volt, the battery must be over a thousand AH. (ampere/ hour) because for the 1440 watt, you need a current of more than 100 ampere. But even with a few hundreds of watt, you need a very powerful battery, because 300 watt, will pull 30 amps from the battery. A car battery with even 100 AH can't deliver that.

My 3000 watt aims inverter/30amp charger seems to work but the charger will not charge/transfer when I turn on the generator. Charging indicator will not come on. It does transfer the generator power


dear see that :
1- the range of voltage which inverter work between it for example 180-260 v
2- most small generator voltage reach more than 260V so the inveter not work
3-check the frequency of genaratoer if it not fix the inverter will mot work

Overvoltage protection does not protect anything ...


Have you opened the inverter to view the circuitry. There may be a fuse on the input -if you're lucky. Otherwise, look for burnt components. If you know how to test electronics, test the components on the board for shorts. So unless you are an electronics tech, I think you may be out of luck.

I buy a new power inverter ERP 2300 12v/220Volts


What does the inverter over 600 Watt.
By what type of battery is the inverter supplied? How many Ah? What is its state?

In order to achieve 1000 Watt for 1 hour you need a fully charged 12 V / 100 Ah lead-acid battery.
If your battery is less then 100 Ah and is not very well charged or old (bad) you may not have over 600 W, but not bacause of the inverter, but the battery.

If your inverter stops due to low input voltage (you can see it in the digital display during operation).

If you want to check the real output power of the inverter you should connect it to a big (more than 200 Ah) well charged battery.

Your inverter has a peak of 3000 watts rating and should power that hair dryer. Make sure your batteries are in good shape. The inverter can only put out what it takes in. 1800 watt demand on the inverter requires 1800 watts from the batteries.

OK my 2000 Discovery does the same thing. Try and hit the inverter charger with your fist 3-4 times, then listen and see if the charger fan starts up. I will be bringing my inverter to Portland this week to have the tech look at it. The other thing is it could be the transfer switch. Will let you know.
