Re: Do i need a 3 phase solar inverter with 3 phase power ?

Yes, a single phase will suffice, but surely a 3 phase system would be better because the cost of purchasing power from grid is more expensive than receiving feed-in credit. For the example given, you would only utilise 1kW of solar out of the 4kW being generated with 3kW being fed into grid for credit. But you would need to purchase 2kW from the grid. Whereas with a 3 phase system, the solar would cover your entire 3kW of usage plus you get 1kW feed-in credit.

The simplest way to do it is at night time when Solar is not operating because at day time if your solar is generating say 3kW and your appliance uses 2kW then after an hour the electricity meter will show no power usage and a 1kWh feed-in power. So to check appliance using the meter, you need to take an initial meter reading at night time then switch on the appliance and start a stopwatch. When the appliance has been on for exactly 1hr (as per t ...
