Re: Best way to wire in inverter to breaker panel?
I am a bit confused...
Assuming this is an off grid system, you treat the battery as the "heart" of your system.
The solar panels go to the solar charge controller which then connects to the battery +/- Bus.
Then your off grid inverter connects its cables to the battery +/- Bus.
Normally, you would have fuses/circuit breakers/switches, as needed, between each of the devices and the +/- battery bus.
Only a Grid Tied Inverter would connect directly to the solar panels (Grid tied inverter+solar panels, no battery bank). A GT Inverter is then connected to your utility panel which eventually connects to your utility meter and power grid and cannot operate if there is no grid or if the utility power failed (as during a storm, power pole knocked down, etc.).
20x BP 4175B panels (replacement) + Xantrex GT 3.3 inverter for 3kW Grid Tied system + Honda eu2000i Inverter/Generator for emergency backup.
