I'm planning a new solar installation on a new house build and was hoping someone could please help me determine the best way to plan and configure it. I'm aware of the 1 factor rule but I'm not sure how it applies to 3-phase installations - if I plan to install a 3-phase Fronius Symo 15kW inverter, does that mean I could install 3x Victron MultiPlus II 5000VA units connected to each phase?
This is the configuration I thought would work best but I'd really appreciate help on whether this configuration is valid and if anyone has thoughts on this design?
- Can I use the Fronius smart meter to monitor consumption or would I be better using the Victron smart meter?
- Given the somewhat disparate use of inverter vendors, is it possible to view and monitor the system using one portal/monitoring system?
- Is there a bypass on the Victron MultiPlus units in the case where the batteries are charged so there's no 'processing' or loss as the electricity passes from the Fronius Inverter to the home's loads?
Many thanks in advance.
