Gibbo's System


Recommended Posts

22 Panels totaling 5.4kW and Delta Solivia inverter dating back to 2012 and still going strong.  Added Powerwall 2 in 2018 along with upgrading breakers on PV set up, and rewiring and separating internal switchboard into a main and sub board to separate out the essential circuits (backed up by Powerwall) from the rest.

Best advice the sparky's ever gave us was to install an MDF panel on some 2 x 4 timber behind the Powerwall / Inverter etc. to hide all the wiring.

The Powerall is an AC connected system that sits on the house side of the Solar PV inverter, and comprises the battery and its own 5kW inverter (the grey box upper left on install).  This allows it to back up the essential circuits in the house when the mains fails.

Powerwall also has its own monitors etc. that sit in the switchboard and support comprehensive monitoring.

    • This news just in  PPK Group has announced that they have unlocked the code for creating Lithium Sulphur batteries at a cost affective price    News release on this link  https://www.ppkgroup.com.au/site/news-media/ppk-group-in-box-seat-with-aussie-breakthrough-that-could-power-the-world
    • Just to update this thread, I have settled on this below config Huawei 8kW 3-phase Inverter and Solar Analytics 26 x Jinko Tiger N-Type 390W Mono Black Frame Modules    
    • I did read in the forums that the Huawei monitoring was delaying everything by 2 hours there for a bit. The fix was be patient and wait as the servers get overwhelmed with loads of traffic at times. Which made me think, once you buy the Inverter, the companies don't really need to worry as much looking after their servers as say a company like Solar Analytics does as that is the only thing they are doing and would lose customers, so its in their best interest to keep it running really well. More likely to have more updates/improvements to their software too over time.
    • For analytics Go with the one that is easier to use and has what you want to check  Some meters are on the unit or in the power box and some have wifi  Ask your installer about the inverter features before making a decision 
    • I think I'm leaning to go to this final setup. Should mention I work from home so most power I think I would use in the day. At least with Solar I could maximize this.  Huawei 8.0kW 3 Phase 2 MPPT w/ wifi (SUN2000-8KTL-M2) instead of Fronius as it is quite a bit cheaper. 10 Year warranty parts and labour. 24x 440w JINKO Tiger-pro panels. Fits (space wise) on the roof quite well. 12 Year Product Warranty.   Around $6500 that I will pay for this install. About $800 of the total price was special brackets used to put half the panels on my metal flat roof. Deciding between different extra consumption monitoring. Solar analytics or the Huawei one. Can't seem to find much info what the Huawei actually gives extra in the monitoring. I think this is the unit model DTSU666-H. Price between them to install is not much but will need to pay a subscription for Solar analytics. Leaning towards the Solar analytics. about $750 installed.
