When the system is running on batteries and being inverted, what is a typical ground network?
Every manufacture I have work with required it as part of the install.meadow said:Code reference:whistling2:
I don't understand why the system would shut off , unless the water pipe was acting like a section of the circuit path back to the source generation. I would check the system wiring out.the reason this came up is because the system was shutting off until the bond was attached to the water pipe. I think the dry ground rod was not enough but I wasnt the installer. It was a J-man that asked me.

690.41 unless you can comply with 690.35
Most of the offgrid systems I install are over 50 volts from the panels, (up to 150 volts) to the charge controllers.
12k off grid system? I've got to see pictures! That's going to take six 80 amp charge controllers. What's the system contain as far as panels, inverters, charge controllers and batteries?danickstr said:he said it was going to 12k then shutting down. i thought it was a wiring thing too but was curious about the lack of city neutral/ground SE tie in.
