Modes of Operation
In Backup mode, the PowerPod prioritizes keeping batteries charged and ready for grid interruption, using only solar power. When grid service is interrupted, the system will automatically begin islanding, powering local loads with solar power or stored battery power.
In Self-Supply mode, the PowerPod prioritizes powering local loads with solar and/or stored power first. The PowerPod will use generated solar power to recharge batteries before any power is exported to the grid. If the battery is full and a surplus of power is available, that surplus is exported to the grid. If the battery is depleted and no solar power is available, power is drawn from the grid to power loads as a last-priority source.
In TOU mode, the inverter remains grid-connected, but prioritizes the use of battery and renewable sources to run loads during high rate periods. Power supplied from the batteries will attempt to match the load for as long as possible during peak Time-of-Use (TOU).
In Custom Mode, you are able to set discharge and charge periods to match your specific energy lifestyle. Once a schedule is set, the system will strictly adhere to these time periods while discharging or charging. When discharging in this mode, all other modifiers are ignored except for the battery reserve value set by the user and battery’s current state of charge. When charging in this mode, the predetermined time periods that are set by the user are the only hours that the battery will attempt to charge to 100%. This mode is only available on AC coupled systems.
