Sunnyboy SB4000TL-20 not connected to grid

  • Hello,
    Just need some help, I will be grateful if you can give some advice please. I have SMA SB4000tl-20 inverter and 16 panels of 250Watts. Estimated output will be around 3500 Watts AC 220Volts 50Hz
    In Pakistan, where I intend to install this inverter and solar panels, the tie grid system is not permitted. Therefore I want to isolate the solar system. I have got the password from SMA to convert in to off grid mode. I also have a UPS which is connected to a big lead acid battery, which can give power of around 1200 Watts. If I connect the output of that UPS into the input of this inverter, the inverter should start to produce power and will give output. Will this system work? What will happen if the battery is fully charged, I mean will the inverter keep on giving 3500 watts output and destroy the battery or the UPS or will the inverter only produce the power in watts which is being consumed?
    Basically, I want to run the whole load during the day time without feeding the grid and do not want to rely on batteries and any other expensive equipment.
    Or is there any circuit, which can be made easily and cheap, which takes most power from the inverter and any surplus required power can be pulled from the grid? Sorry, I do not know German Language :(


    Thanks
    Imran

  • hello!
    your ups-inverter must be able to regulate the power of the sma. that goes only with the frequency.
    is your ups compatible with this system?
    you can ask sma.
    this inverter can regulate the power ofr your sb4000tl: (example)

  • Net-Metering has now been allowed, but there is a requirement of Third Party Indemnity Insurance. Don't know if the insurance is costly, i.e equivalent to what my solar panels will generate, then it might be useless to setup the solar system. Does anyone know about this and cost etc?
