    Schaef's Powerwall

    Well... in the past month or so, I have been thinking about my entire setup, and I have decided that it wasn't good enough for me, hence why I'm now selling a whole bunch of cells, as well as an inverter on eBay. Basically, I decided I needed more power, and less points of inefficiency, so I...

    Breaker sizing and types

    Got it. So as long as the breaker is rated for AT LEAST the max voltage that I run, it will be fine. Then the other question I had, is 63A enough, if I'm using a 5000W inverter? Or, do I need to get something more powerful? I question it, because 5000w*48v=104A. Not sure if thats totally...

    Breaker sizing and types

    So I'm looking at safety devices for shutoff of the powerwall that I'm building. On the DC side, for shutoff, I'm looking at breaker/shunt trips. Do I want to look for a certain DC rated breaker? For example, Factorymation sells DC rated breakers at 60, 80, 125VDC, all @63A. My wall will be...

    240v Inverter questions..

    Came up with another question. Lets say I get the 5000w inverter. Its got a 10,000w surge for 3 seconds. The system will run 240v through the transformer to turn it into 120v. Is there usually a "surge" rating on transformers? Like.. If I get a 5000w transformer, does it have a surge rating...

    Short little update - I’ve got almost all the batteries I need to build the wall.. around 920.. I got a bunch of scrap #6 for the pack wiring, stripped it all out, and bent it all into a shape to build the pack. I’ve purchased everything needed to actually build each pack, and I did so before...

    240v Inverter questions..

    Daromer - I had actually asked that question specifically of the inverter in question. It does in fact accept split phase 240v as input, and outputs single phase 240v. It has 220-230-240v selectable outputs, as well as a 50/60hz output. I assume connecting 240v split phase vs connecting...

    240v Inverter questions..

    The transformer will just be a single phase I think - not split phase, but I suppose the answer is still the same.. my amperage increases, but total wattage stays the same.. thats why I was confused.. OffGridInTheCity - This is an off-grid inverter that you can bypass battery/solar for grid...

    240v Inverter questions..

    So here's the scoop.. (Im based in the US) I can purchase a 3000w inverter that outputs 120v for about $800 I can also purchase a 5000w inverter that outputs 240v single phase for about $800 240v to 120v 10,000w transformer = ~$200 Let's say I purchase the 5000w inverter. I'll connect the...

    Update - I talked to UPS today, and they helped me figure out shipping for lithium.. so I WILL ship now... Prices will all be the same per cell, except you also pay shipping. Shipping costs vary depending on the number of cells you need.

    So I've been watching a lot of Youtube and following threads here lately, and figured it's about time that I threw up everything I've done so far. I'd been thinking about building a project like this one, but wasn't quite sure about how to go about building such a system, until I found the...
