connect a 3 phase grid tie inverter to a single phase connection

SkipSkip Registered Users Posts: 18 ✭✭
I just picked up a PVPowered 4600 Grid Tied Inverter, and I am wondering if it could be used on a single phase home connection or is it only good for a 3 phase connection? Google searches only provide 3 phase inverter connecting to 3 phase connections information.

    The inverter would need all 3 phases to operate and would power down on a single phase loss to prevent backfeeding the grid so it couldn't be used on a single phase service.
