Wizard settings for Gen Upper Voltage Limit

Postby whansteen on Fri Nov 10, 2017 1:47 pm

Hi,

I'm programming the Mate3, and I need help with the correct settings for Gen Lower Voltage Limit and Gen Upper Voltage Limit. I have a Generac Guardian 8kW 120/240 and the tech support for my generator had no idea. Any idea what the upper and lower voltage limit settings should be?

Thanks!

I think these settings are more for you to limit what your inverter will accept than for matching your generator's limits. These are the same voltages your house wiring and loads may see when the generator is running so you want to set them accordingly. Don't want to burn up any expensive electronics! :eek:

You think correctly :grin: Its the high and low the inverters will drop the gen, I am not sure of the defaults on your inverter ? but all the rest, Default is fine,
