Re: Thinking About Solar for Your Home?


Dan Lepinski, P.E.
 

It may synchronize to a small generator, but it's a bad idea to connect a photovoltaic system to a generator without some sophisticated electronics to prevent damage.

If the photovoltaic system is producing more power than is being consumed by the load(s), it will force the excess power backward into the generator, and damage/destroy the generator. Some inverters can be set up to prevent this from occurring. Some cannot.

Was wondering if such a system (no battery) would sync to a small generator?
