Silly question about 3kw solar, charger and battery
#11
The simplest way would be to have a regular mains powered battery charger switched when your solar input is high.

A typical grid tied solar panel installation usually runs high voltage DC (200-400V ish) & you don't want to mess with that.

If you already have a grid tied setup, like the OP, you want to build an AC coupled system with a hybrid inverter like the Victron mentioned previously. If you look up those systems, they go between your current inverter and the panel/grid and either let it feed your house, charge batteries, or sell to the grid.

Victron inverter/chargers are installed parallel to the existing grid tied installation not "between".

Very stupid maybe.
Disconnect your array and connect it directly to a vectron unit?

4200 cells in packs Exclamation above 2500mah and 90%soh.
1500 waiting for testing.

Saving for 3 times phoenix inverter 48/3000 230v to gain also 380v
3 chargers?

Time is our enemy, must work to, the sun is our friend, must relax to.

The problem with this from my experience is City Inspection.  By going off-grid I was able to legally bypass all the Power Company (not so good) requirements.   IF you hook victron directly (rather than parallel) I would imagine you would need to revisit Power Company requirements/permits. Maybe by doing parallel - you could avoid that.
P.S. I liked the question Smile

Same problem over here, and worse.
Despite power company requirements/permits
You are not allowed to go offgrid, they want to control.
You must deliver to them, battery's in large numbers is not allowed anymore(agm, lead acid ect) 2 max.
Try to get a tesla home battery.....ect ect
You must use something.

So built it of slowly...so i will only have a electric cooking plate/furnas on the grid Smile
