 ==== 2.1 Rule definition ==== ==== 2.1 Rule definition ====
 In both grid-connected and off-grid systems with PV inverters installed on the output of a Multi, Inverter or Quattro, there is a maximum of PV power that can be installed. This limit is called the __factor 1.0 rule__: 3.000 VA Multi = 3.000 Wp installed solar power. So for a 8.000 VA Quattro the maximum is 8.000 Wp, for two paralleled 8000 VA Quattros the maximum is 16.000 Wp, etc. In both grid-connected and off-grid systems with PV inverters installed on the output of a Multi, Inverter or Quattro, there is a maximum of PV power that can be installed.

 Multis and Quattros with factory settings will not shift the AC output frequency to regulate charge current. When setting up an AC Coupled system, install either the [[ess:​start|ESS Assistant]] (for grid-connected systems) or the [[:​assistants:​pv-inverter-support]] (for off-grid systems). Multis and Quattros with factory settings will not shift the AC output frequency to regulate charge current.
