    New to the forum

    I'm located in eastern Wisconsin. I joined this forum to learn and get opinions and advice from those who are educated and experienced in PV. I am 70 years old and have no experience with PV, but I do have experience in HVAC.
    I will post some questions soon.

      New to the forum with many questions.

      Short background on my objective: I intend to create the ability to recharge an Anker F3800 Power Station with PV panels if needed during an extended grid outage. I will also be able to recharge the Power Station with a gas generator or the grid if it is up. The power station will plug into my generator panel instead of the gas generator, feeding selected circuits in my home.

      The limitations of the Power Station for solar recharging are 2 inputs of 1200 watts each, for a total of 2400 watts. The two inputs are each limited to 25 amps with a voltage supply from 32 to 60 VDC.

      My question: Would 3 panels with 390-watt Pmax, 39.64 Vmp, 9.84 Imp, and 48.6 Voc, wired in parallel, be a good selection for the limitations of the Power Station.
      There would be a total of 6 panels feeding the Power Station, 3 for each of it’s two inputs.
      If there is a better selection to be made, please share.
      Thanks for your help.
