Hybrid / Off-Grid Inverters

5kVa – 15kW System – There are many designs, call us to custom yours…

Off-Grid systems are designed for remote applications where no grid power is available.

These are mostly used with a generator or a wind turbine as a backup to support the battery bank if the weather is bad.

These systems work with specially designed lead acid 2v deep cycle batteries for long-term cycling.  AMG & GEL batteries are not recommended.

These batteries last normally 10-15 years depending on the depth of discharge (D.O.D).

These systems are mostly over-designed for longer backup that makes it more expensive.   Return on investment could be +-8-10 years.

Scaling these systems is not a problem, smallest 1kwh up to 1000kwh…. (units not kw)

 

Hybrid systems are designed for applications where there is grid power that is available for backup and to allow the system to work in auto switching mode.

Optionally these are used with a generator or wind turbine as an extra 2nd backup to support the battery bank if load shedding or unstable grid is a big problem.

These systems work with specially designed lead acid 2v deep cycle batteries for long-term cycling or can work with GEL or AGM 12v batteries that have a shorter lifespan.  

Lead acid 2v cells last 10-15 years depending on D.O.D and GEL or AMG 12v cells last 4-7 years depending on D.O.D.  If you are in it for the long term then GEL or AMG is not recommended.

These systems are mostly designed on the kwh usage of the load requirements.

In case you use more kwh then what the system was designed for or over the limit, the system will automatically switch back to grid mode for the grid to supply the load or if it is set up it will charge batteries from the grid.

Return on investment would be +-8-10years.
