PV array configuration with vfd

Dear folks I have 5.5 KW solar pump iverter (invt)   model no CHF100A. It's input voltage is 400v while I have 315watts 16 solar panels. Will these all panels be connected in series or half in parralal. Please guide. Thanks

    The panels could not be all used in series as that would exceed the 400V input maximum, 2 strings of 8 panels paralleled together would be in the 300-350V regon.

    What's really needed for more detailed answers are more details, inverter and motor to be driven specifications panel details would help somewhat.

    16 Panels 315 volts each.  Pump is 4HP, 380 volts 3 phase 7 amp while inverter is i put volt=400v, 10 to 15 A.  Inverter and pump plates are attached. Thanks

    According to the manual the input for the inverter is 380VAC 3 phase, there is no mention of using DC as an input although it may be possible since the inverter would rectify the AC input, but using the manual as a guide, there is no conformation.
