Is it necessary or prudent to disconnect inverter also during lightning and thunder?
Have a query about how to manage inverter during lightening? Searching for detailed technical knowledge and advice for handling the inverter? Find advice from experts on this Ask Expert page.
The TV cable service providers always give warnings to disconnect set-top boxes from power during lightning. At my home, as a precaution I disconnect all appliances that are plugged, put off the main switch and even inverter.
Today my friend said why we should disconnect inverter, as it is needed for power when main power is off.
Once I had an issue during lightning, when the ELCB of main tripped, inverter tripped and was giving continuous alarm which I could not stop. The electrician was not immediately available. I had to disconnect the battery under remote advice by technician. Then I had to take it to service centre. From that day I was more cautious and was disconnecting everything during lightning and thunder.
Those who have the technical knowledge and expertise, and also those with practical experience please give me the right answer to this: whether it is necessary to disconnect inverter also during lightning and thunder?
