Morning guys.

I have just put in a new system and am still trying to get my head around the mathematics of solar.

My question is on wire gauge.

I have just bought a 100 meter roll of insulated armored cable.

The inner core is AWG 6 and the outer when calculated is also AWG 6

I am using the inner as positive and outer as negative.

I have 2 solar panels and both are 24 volts x 250 Watt each

I have connected them in parallel

So I have a 24v x 500 Watt array.

My batteries ( 4 x 12v x 200 amp series and parallel =24v x 400amp ) and CC are 30/50 feet away.

Is this wire size ok?

Cheers
