I have received lots of great feedback from other like Oz, RF, Ross, Lachlan, Dan and others. Oz suggested I put my project here to keep better track and solicit feedback and please, kind criticisms so that I might improve the system overall.
Sketches to follow and pics.
this will be a completely
I am working with the PowerJack 8000w LF pure sine wave inverter that's been blessed by Oz and I will be making adjustments recommended by same. Only difference being that mine has a built in MPPT solar panel charge controller and the toroid coil takes up all of the space to the left of the main and control boards, whereas Oz's had 2 toroid coils.
system will have as follows:
1). 20-300w poly panels 10 each on the eastern side of the 2nd floor roof and 10 each on the western side of same roof at the recommended 10 to 15 degree incline (southerly?)
2). 24v PJ 8000w inverter
3.) 1 2400w pma wind turbine connected thru an MPPT charge controller which includes an ATS function to switch to another load, in my case to a dump load especially when winds exceed the need. DUMP LOAD, what is it? Ideas on best build for a dump load. resistor bridge? DC water heater? Space heater converted to 24v? Would greatly appreciate a sketch of a resistor dump load.
4). 2-2400w 120a MPPT solar charge controllers attached to the separate banks of 10 each panels.
5). 16-3.2v 200ah LiFePO4 batteries separated in 2 banks 8 each in series for 25.6v 200ah ea, then both banks paralleled for 400ah total (math?)
6). PowerJacks 3000w autostart 24w lpg genset in case of maintenance, special circumstances or other failures occurring.
7). Automatic electric transfer box in case of inverter failure to switch to Meralco.
. Lastly (maybe, there is a lot more learning curve involved with coding Arduino and Raspberry Pi) microcontrollers to monitor and report system aspect such as inverter temps battery temps and voltage system wide along with those items the lcd monitors on the PJ are monitoring.
These Stats will be relayed via dyndns.org to an app on my iphone or iPad as well as sms text alerts to my phone via a gsm module.
I also desire the microcontrollers to not just read stats but take action such as taking control of the cooling fan in the PJ (zap spiders Oz :0), maybe shut down a bank of batteries, switch to to the grid if absolutely necessary (i'm going for off-grid because electric credits do me no good if it's only $1.25 to have the service on standby, reset the inverter automatically for re-try after overload or undervolt etc.
all for now.
