System without the Grid Tied Limiter :
~ The grid tied inverter feeds all of the power available from the solar panels to the AC Load, all excess power is then exported to the Grid. If the Grid fails then the Grid Tied Inverter (GTI) will turn off. When the Grid comes back on line the GTI will export power back again.
~ If the GTI is producing less power than what is required by the AC LOAD then the load will be supplemented with power from the Grid.
~ If the grid tied inverter is producing more power than what is required by the AC LOAD then the excess power will be exported to the Grid.
~ Power Meters (Except Smart Meters) are not aware of the direction of power flow. They will charge for power in both directions and this is a problem.
~ The GRID TIED LIMITER will fix this problem by preventing the export of power to the grid.
System with the Grid Tied Limiter :
~ The GRID TIED LIMITER will prevent the Grid Tied Inverter (GTI) from exporting power back into the Grid.
~ The GRID TIED LIMITER will measure the power required by the load and notify the GTI To limit the power generated to equal that of the AC Load. Because no extra power is generated no power can be exported.

- 1/3 Household Power still imported from GridReview by Johann
I would have expected the GTL to only consume a fraction of the load, but whenever I increased the household load, my Grid load has also increased by one third.
Even at full sun, with 16 x 230W Tenesol panels, the GTL still does not put all the energy generated to good use by minimizing the Grid load.
As a Prepaid client, I still prefer this option as to investing R6000 into a SmartMeter that could or could not be supported by my local council.
On a positive note, there is no fluctuations in power when the switch is made between Solar & Grid. (Posted on 23/12/2013)
