    Default Re: Heating calorifier by inverter?

    I have considered something similar on my system. I believe that you have a
    Victron MPPT. If you have a colour control, venus or raspbery Pi running venus you could program a relay to open depending on criteria relating to the state of charge of the batteries. If the inverter is a Victron you could make that trigger a relay also. I would look to reduce the voltage as you would get more energy out if it were taken at a lower rate due to Peukerts law.

    I am really interested in this approach of using a voltage reducer, did you need an isolation switch to cut the supply when on shore power or is the unit OK with the back voltage?
