Re: battery storage and 3 phase power

A question for those who are more familiar with the electrical engineering side of things... I don't understand why a battery needs to be associated with a particular phase, in a multi-phase system. Solar panels produce DC power.Batteries store DC power.Inverters are where the DC power is turned into AC power. When installed at a site with 3 phase power, with one inverter per phase, why does the battery need to be associated with any phase in particular? Surely it could be installed in parallel ...
