    Hi There Does this inverter use all the solar panels generation first and get supplemented by the grid when the load exceeds the solar generation or does it change over to grid completely like the axpert 5048 MKS?RegardsGreg Answer:
    Hi Greg. The first part. It supplements from the grid when there isn't enough solar power. Also, the Axpert MKS II works in the same way. See this screen shot of the inverter powering a kettle with some solar power and the rest grid (also note that there are no batteries connected. Regards Solar Shop Support.

    Can the Goodwe es hybrid inverter also be connected to solar panels.I would like to have electricity during power outages and at night as well as use solar power during the day.Exactly what would I require to begin a start-up system to which I can build on each year? Answer:
    Hi Ivan. The Goodwe inverter is designed to work with Pylontech Li-ion batteries and will take 5-6kW of solar panels. You need to start with the inverter and at least one battery and around 6 solar panels. Regards Solar Shop Support

    Can I use the inverter with grid power and battery only and no panels? Answer:
    Hi Mo, yes you can use it in this way. Regards Solar Shop Support

    How does this inverter and PV work with the battery if needed for daily day and night use? What load will it support nightly? Critical or all? Can this be set, if so is this done by the battery setting or the inverter setting? Answer:
    Hi, the battery will hold up the back up loads (subject to it's own capacity). There are several modes of operation, the default one allows the battery to discharge nightly to a defined DOD. Regards Solar Shop Support

    Hi, I currently have 24 x 240w panels and 6 x 2.4KW Pylontech Li-ion batteries. I had 2 x 5KVA Axpert inverters. The inverters blew and now I need to replace them. Could I install 1 x 4.6KW hybrid inverter? Answer:
    Hi Adrian. Yes, you can do this.
  • Asked by Lyndon Ownhouse

    What is the maximum load the inverter can output? What happens in a situation where they may be a temporary draw of 7kw for 10 minutes - will it be able to supply this requirement from the grid? Answer:
    Hi Lyndon. Max output is 4.6kW. It can spike to 6,900VA for 10 seconds, so nowhere near 7kW for 10 minutes.
  • Asked by Jason Varney
    on 05/06/2019
    Hi, during peak solar generation can I draw more than 4.6kW and charge the batteries (4x3.5kWh Pylons), eg. run the kettle, dishwasher and washing machine while it's charging the batteries around 10am to 3pm, will it supplement from the grid if it can't cope? Answer:
    Hi Jason. No, it won't, it will shut down completely.
  • Asked by Wouter Styger
    on 07/06/2019
    I am looking at buying 2x Axpert MKS II 5K inverters. I have 3x questions 1. What is the minimum size Pylon battery bank I need to install? (2.4kWh or 4.8kWh? I am planning on adding more batteries later on) 2. Lyndon Ownhouse asked the question of what happens in a situation where they may be a temporary draw of 7kw for 10 minutes - will it be able to supply this requirement from the grid? If I had 1x 5kVA inverter, wouldn't the inverter switch over to bypass and draw all the power from the grid? 3. You replied to Greg Lee Sun that the Axpert MKS II can supplement load from the grid when there isn't enough solar power. Please reconfirm as this would be the reason I opt to get these units. Up to what power draw would you get this "supplement" load when using 2x MK II 5K inverters? Answer:
    Hi Wouter. In answer to your questions: 1) Each 2.4kW battery can only supply. 25A @ 50V = 1.2kW so you would need 4 batteries to pull a full 5kw 2) The inverter will shut down in this situation. It can only supply 4.6kW max, with a small margin for 20 second surges. 3) It will supplement up to the 4.6kW limit.
