Re: Using the battery as an emergency supply

Kiev,
Thank you once again for the valuable information.

I am not sure what you mean by direct vs ready more.

I am sourcing a chademo plug at the moment to see if i get all the components first.

If I have any results i will post again.

Re: Using the battery as an emergency supply

Kiev,

That is a very interesting blog you have put up. Do you have photos of the relay and how to get to the relay and Chadomo?

I am assuming you have tried to use the Chadomo dc output to an inverter. What were your findings and how well does it work?

Thanks

Chris

Re: Using the battery as an emergency supply

I have just found a dc to ac inverter which has an input voltage of 380 volts dc to 230 v ac. Do i have to programme the iMiev to be able to use the dc charger output ?

Does anyone have the pin connection for the dc plug?

Re: Using the battery as an emergency supply

Kiev, I installed a domestic 1840wp grid solar panels tied to the utility supplier. I export all unconsumed generated power to the grid and import from the grid when consumption exceeds generated and at night. On average I generate what I consume especially in summer. I am now waiting for a storage ...

Re: Using the battery as an emergency supply

Aerowhatt, Now the solutions are coming in fast. Thank you for you suggesting to charge a deep cycle battery using the high power dc to dc converter of the iMiev. From your figures it is much more efficient, even though the auxiliaries consume 500w/hr. (So this is the reason the fuel gauge depleates...

Re: Using the battery as an emergency supply

Kiev, That is a very interesting option. I would say it should suffice for power as it would consume two notches on the fuel meter and give me 24 hour of autonomy. I need around 120w/hr. I would need to find a 230 v ac at 50 hz one so as not to burn out my equipment. Most of it is rated at 220 volts...

Re: Using the battery as an emergency supply

Kiev,

Thank you for your suggestion. I would need to find an inverter which has 340v dc input to 230v ac output. I have never seen one on ebay. Any suggestions?

Re: Using the battery as an emergency supply

Thank you both for your replies. Which mirror each other. It all started out from the fact that Mitshubishi has produced for the Japanese market after the zunami to give distributed power during the emergency. However they never produced it for other markets. Thus my idea is a non starter. Thank you...
