Cohabitation archi isolated site + archi self-consumption ???




by chris34 » 17/10/22, 15:59

Hello !

I currently have an "archi in isolated site" installation.
She is getting a bit old (10 years old)
I'm thinking about different technical solutions (including connecting to my neighbor, who is plugged into ENEDIS. In short!)

I would like to have your opinion on the technical possibility (zero risk : Cry: ?) to add PV with micro-inverters ... and continue with the other source in (PV + Batteries + inverter) ...

Thank you in advance.
Beautiful day !
Christian

But your installation is still producing?

The batteries may need to be reviewed?

We don't know enough!

Sorry for the delay in answering (I'm new: I hadn't seen the notification...) :-(
...And thank you for your answer !!! :-)

Yes, the batteries are old (= 2012!) they are Victron AGM 12 v / 90Ah (X 8 pieces)
I also wonder about the brand: Victron or something else? ULTIMATRON = serious brand ???
but also : GEL or AGM ???

MA current peak power of PV = 1,7 Kwh/C
I was thinking of the possibility of installing PV with micro-inverters for the main consumption (full day)

There you go... :-)

Sorry to insist after Phil59... We don't really understand your problem.
Is it your 1,7 kWp that is no longer sufficient for your daytime needs, in which case you should actually add power.
Or are your batteries no longer sufficient to provide you with the minimum capacity needed outside the day because after about 10 years they are simply rinsed out?
If the batteries are flushed, adding power during the day will change little or nothing.

Well, we still don't know much more...

How do you use your batteries? 10 years old, it's starting to age, but depending on your installation and use, it could still be a few years old.

!!micro inverters require to be on the network....

For me the panels are still good, maybe little brothers to be expected .... and some batteries ....

Good.
Thank you for your answers.
yes, I am often told that I do not know how to express myself. ;-)

So: my 1,7 KwC is enough for me during the day (but a little more watts wouldn't bother me ;-)
THE BIG problem = my near-nasty batteries: I would like to change them. So, I ask myself (you) the question: GEL or ADM??? and also "Is ULTIMATRON a serious brand???
The shot of PV in + with micro-inverters: OK we drop if not technically possible ;-)!!!

Thank you !! : Cheesy:

Well, at least there the question is clear!
But sorry, for my part I have no personal experience or any answer other than what I could possibly find like you on the internet.
Good continuation.

Or lifepo4?

We still don't know how you use your batteries, if you shoot at worst 80% in it or 20%, or more.

You will only get incomplete answers, without all the information.
