Question on charge controller, battery & inverter connections.
From the off-grid basic setup scheme :
Array >> Charge Controller >> Battery / Inverter >> AC load
1 - Where is the inverter drawing power from?
2 - Are the battery & inverter connected in parallel to the charge controller or are they
connected in series?
If the battery & inverter are connected in parallel (that is, battery & inverter positive terminals connected together & their negative terminals similarly connected together) and then connected to the charge controller, is the inverter drawing power from the battery or from the charge controller ?
Is it possible for the inverter to draw power directly from the array instead of getting power from the battery during DAYTIME to lessen the charge/discharge cycles of the battery? And then at the same time charge the battery to be used during NIGHTTIME.
Is this possible at all? Can anyone help, please?
