If say a result first, nothing improved yet
More evidence(users) are complaining Ehphase IQ7+ Inverters are showing Random Produciton Drop with 'No Grid Profile' error with Firmware v4.27 or v4.28. I have thought firmware v4.28 can resolve the issue, but, not.
Now, I decide to change wiring for all inverters to check the difference.
This is the current layout, there is no issue at Rear Roof, Only issue at Front Side Upper/Lower Roof.
So, I just try to simplify the front root layout.
This is the updated front layout
(1) rear roof - I have reduce the cable length by 4'
(2) front roof - change the wiring, and reduce the power on the wire by half. the length has reduced by 4'. and, it is a new wire from roof to load-center.
(3) porch - direct to JB, No more path thru on front roof panels, so, the power path has reduce by 12'
Base on my calculation, this change has lmproved for the voltage rising and interference of panels (inverters).
The first day of test, I cannot find any noticeable difference. actually, the inverters are showing error continously. (OTL), but, I wish to compare the difference before/after the layout changes (if there is any improvements)
1. Will getting worse
2. Not related with GRID - no need to check grid or profile
3. Just power on reset - at first power on reset, it is showing 'Grid Instability Error' because no grid profile
I have requested a detail information abut LCF-064-1P,
Enphase - datasheet only
Manufacturer - can not provide it because customized item
No more solution with LCF, I have decided to return the filter on Enphase,
I am not sure the part is no good, or filtering is not enough.
So, I start to find the solution on my way,
I have reinstalled RP230-30-10-S and GTX-2300
BUT, it has too high line loss, so, I have disassembled & checked GTX-2300.
the coil configuration is the two-in-hand winding, it is good for common mode filtering, But, it has lower magnetic
leakage, so,not good for differential mode filtering. it is not much useful for me.
so, I have removed it. and, reduce 0.5mA leakage current & 10mOhm Resistance Loss
RP230-30-10-S have 60dB 50/50 insertion loss, but, can not block
the signal from next door also, I guess, my noise level at my home is too quiet and no one use PLC devices.
Yes, high SNR, so, just Envoy signal can be detected too easily.
so, I have decided to add an extra differential mode filter using ferrite
Ferrite core is B64290L0082X065
and, look the wire direction, it is the coupled differential mode, and 2 turns.
over one day, it can isolated successfuly, the expected core loss is 200-300Wh per year.
it is much less than 1~2kWh in GTX-2300-Y02.
This configuration will be saturated under 10A. so, I have tried on single turn.
at least, I need 20A because higher current will act as a noise, and will reduce the sensitivity of enovy.
and, I just need this inductor is working at the lower current (quite) zone.
This is final configuration.
It is working well, now, my system has been isolated completely.
and, no more cross-domain-traffic issue.
The cost of Ferrite & RP230 filter is just $80, and under $100 include tax & shipping.
It will working when system current is under 24A (around 20, IQ7+),
If want to apply on the bigger system, need bigger filter
