New here, and beginner on this forum,
I have been pointed to check here for info regarding GMDE inverter's or maybe better not to use them..?
Forgive me writing in English, hope there's no problem for all to read it, please do reply in German.
Not a problem reading German for me.
Learned from the project of Trond from Norge with the Nissan Leaf batteries, by reading in http://www.photovoltaikforum.com/
Then I started searching and found Olaf Krause's forum
I have read with interest the story line of Joerg, though be it with a different focus,
so glad to find a GMDE diy-project that had a REC-BMS working with the Ge-atom 318KTL.
I learned of the misfortune with Joergs GMDE inverter, and the bad service he had from China.
Meanwhile we are in 2016, GMDE has set-up a service center in Germany.
I was happy to get a life person on the phone, in Europe, which gave me confidence.
I simply cannot afford SMA IS x3 for having 3-phase,
so an option would be to give GMDE a serious thought.
GMDE GE-atom 318KTL, now is available with a battery voltage of 40 to 100V,
exactly what I need.
I have been lucky to score 2 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV 12Kw batteries, 24Kw total
Per battery there are 10 Yuasa LEV40-8 cell-blocks 30V/40Amp, in series.
I plan to connect them in two serial @60V, 5 pairs parallel, nicely matching with the voltage bracket of the GEatom 318KTL 40-100V
Bringing the number of cell-blocks down to a total that will fit REC BMS16
Using the Rec BMS + Joerg's Loxone server EMS solution, it could happen that I may get my ESS battery bank to work with GMDE inverters....
So here's my bid for help.
could you consider helping out with your particular set-up with the Loxone server that was the EMS interface between REC bms and the GMDE 318KTL
any suggestions, would be appreciated
I have attached some pictures, and info regarding the Outlander PHEV baterry.
The attached Yuasa pdf's are regarding the LEV50-8, but Outlander blog's suggest,that the Lev40-8 has the same characteristics but for the amps
Both cars were production date 10/2013, most likely commissioned/registered on or close to jan/2014. Start of the fiscal year, and lease company owned.
Scrapped, around may 2016, given 365 days a year x 2 + a bit extra makes a 1000 cycles or less, of the 5500 claimed cycles, so 4500 cycles left ( I hope)
That will give around 10 years life span, when in use as ESS. More than enough for me.
In the battery salvage came some more goodies like contactors; triple pole brand Omron model G9EA-3-CA, and a lot of bushbar
