To load #inverter is not like to connect appliance with wall socket. You can only connect loads to inverter which do not exceed its rated power (e.g. you cannot connect a 300W computer to a 150W inverter).
If you erroneously try to connect loads bigger than its rated power, it would get damaged while you buy another inverter. But our SW Schneider Inverter has overload protection, this inverter will just simply won’t start or stop running without any damage. After a few seconds, inverter will try to start again automatically if surplus loads are removed
We completed a solar power systems in Lekki last week and this is the customer’s experience. Usually we train our customers how to use their systems after commissioning but customers will always wish to run every appliance regardless of the power rating of the inverter they run on.
We designed & installed a 2.5kva SW Schneider inverter for this customer to power a Fridge, 1Ac to run for 3hours, Fans, lights. The customer however wants everything (two fridges, a freezer, a regular water pump & pressure pump) connected to this 2.5kva inverter which we did. We gave our professional advice to the customer NOT to turn everything on at the same time on a 2.5kva SW Schneider inverter.
There was NEPA and the customer turned everything on i.e. Ac, two fridges, Freezer, a regular pumping machine and pressure pumping machine. After some minutes NEPA goes off. The inverter picked up and everything that was on went to the inverter. Guess what happened?
SW Schneider inverter was beeping due to overload and shutdown itself automatically. At this point the customer was already terrified thinking she had broken the inverter. Our SW Schneider Inverter did not get damaged, it only shutdown itself for a few minutes but later came on for good without any issue. This is what you get when you buy quality inverter like SW Schneider inverter and charge controllers. If you have been replacing your inverter due to damages caused by overload, then SW Schneider inverter is what you need. You will not have to replace your inverter anymore and this will help you save a lot.
