Grid Tie Inverter Project

    I am working on a project that involves connecting solar, wind,
    microhydro power into a grid tie system, without the huge expense of the
    GTIs. Can anyone help me with a circuit diagram I am working with? Are
    there any electrical engineers out there?

    Thank you

  2. Can you post it? PNG file on some photo site would be a good start.

  4. God, that's not going to work. You need the GTI, at least ONE, and
    switch the input source of the GTI to whatever input you want.

    Cheers

    Will 2 off the shelf GTI's allow input to both phases (120/240vac
    60Hhz), from the same DC input source?

    Thank you

    Take a look at the diagram now...thanks for the input.

    I updated the circuit for possible 220VAC adaptation. I just need to
    build a 2nd unit to see if this works.

    Any comments?

    Any suggestions on fixing it would be greatly appreciated.

    I do agree that the small 250w grid tie units are cheaper to buy. But
    the unit we are working on costs as much as a 250w unit to build, but it
    allows up to 3000w. A Chinese 3000w inverter will set you back $600+.

    Insane? Maybe. I'm like most. I am just sick and tired of overpaying for
    a monopolized utility. I am very well trained at handling high voltage.
    I rewired my entire house, and upgraded in incoming service myself. I
    went from an old 80Amp service to 200Amp.

    You show an obvious ignorance for basic physics and reading a schematic
    diagram.

    There are so many errors in that schematic of a overdone full wave bridge I
    cannot begin to explain them all! You have displayed this ignorance a year
    or so ago here and you were told then it was a garbage circuit and will not
    do anything except probably explode.

    Sorry. Looking at the circuit again, in disbelief, the circuit will do
    nothing except chage the input capacitors.

    Look. Somebody is playing a bad joke on you by giving you a full wave bridge
    rectifier circuit, injecting a few obvious to a tech joke capacitors and
    telling you to hook it up backwards.

    You have been totally suckered by a conartist and you are currently telling
    the whole world you are looking for an "Up-Doc". It is going to get a lot
    worse, here, if you keep displaying your ignorance on these matters.

    You may be trained in high-volateg but I doubt you understand a BPD, CVT or
    PC circuit.

    The single phase 110v connection works fine. Instead of criticizing, why
    not help with trying to get the 220v connection resolved?

    Afterall, newsgroups were created so we can share ideas. Just ignore the
    post if you do not care to help. What's the worst that can happen with
    this circuit? A few blown fuses or a couple of devices fry?

    Use your expertise to help, not hinder and belittle those trying to do a
    worthwhile project.

    Here is the link of the designer of the GTI circuit.

    http://www.neo-aerodynamic.com/GridTieInverter.html

    There is a complete parts list there in case you would like to make one
    for yourself. It's easy to knock down these ideas, but it's always
    better when you first try it yourself, then help develop the idea for
    all to use.

    Instead of trying to avoid the eventual outcome of this why do you not take
    some elctronics courses at a local college and learn why you look so stupid
    here.

    It does **NOT*** work and three things come to mind from this.

    1) Either this website is **your** website or you are the victim of a bad
    joke. The schematic is a scam to sell some other product, only and could
    never function.
    2) Either way you have lied many times about your success, energy from
    magic, and the schematic and are nothing short of a very poor conman.
    3) You are an asshole/troll for wasting people's time and attempts to help
    you with your criminal style behaviour.

    We'll be watching for more of your garbage.

    Shame on me, I believe we were to this point a year ago with your ignorance.
    Go away.

    People like Josepi usually swear because they do not have any self
    control. You can clearly see his antisocial behavior which always
    resorts to verbal abuse.

    Your mind is not clean, so you do not understand how to channel all that
    negative energy. Therefore you resort to offend others, show no
    consideration for your fellow man.

    I am not a religious person, and I do not believe in God. But the words
    written in the Bible were place there to guide people like you. So
    pratice what your good book teaches, and turn the other cheek. No matter
    how you try to insult me, I am not going away...

    Who are you addressing?

    I was not insulting you, but I do have a renewed interest to find you and
    insure you do not spread your garbage too far to other suckers via the
    Internet. Somebody will get hurt with the dangerous circuits you are
    presenting.

    Thanx for all the links. It's a start.

    In my view, this is not a place for religious discussion OR insulting
    people's religious beliefs OR alternate-energy scams, and
    unfortunately for scammers including YOU, I'm not going away either...

    Now that you got that off your chest, any suggestions toward the subject
    Get what "off my chest"???

    How is it, that when you go off on an "off-topic" rant proselytizing
    your religious beliefs in one post, you can chide someone for being
    "off-topic" in responding to YOUR rant with your next post???

    I'm not worried about your chest, but have you had a CAT scan
    lately???
