I am a home owner with a battery backup system I built for my home. The system provides a limited power source when grid power is not available. It uses a Victron MultiPlus Compact 12/2000/80-50 120v inverter/charger. It has a 400 Ah battery capacity and a small solar array. When used, it needs to be connected manually to the house system, I don’t use the automatic transfer function. It currently only provides a 120v output for the house circuits.
I would like to expand the system capability by adding another identical Victron inverter and configuring them as a split phase system to provide both 120v and 240v to the house breaker panel. I believe this is possible using a second MultiPlus Compact inverter. Appendix E in the inverter manual is my source. I’d like to verify that, in the split phase configuration, the outputs could be connected to a standard household breaker box and operate the same as the grid power. Each inverter 120v output would be connected to one of the ‘hot’ breaker legs and the common neutral would be connected to the breaker box neutral.
There is one 240v circuit for a water pump that I am trying to power (.37kW single phase).
Would this operate as I am expecting?
Thanks in advance for any help.
