Electrical Copper Wire Sizes - Jim i have executed masses of solar battery deploy and that i do not assume i've more then some that have 10 feet of wire among batteries and inverter . So i in my view think its a would really like to have rule not a hard fast rule. Yes you could double and triple up on wires and enlarge your length use a copper buss bar to tie then in together rather then the pinnacle of a battery . I am going right down to the scrap supplier and examine what he has and so long as my resistance i need is ok i will even use 1 four/zero twine and a pair of 2/zero's if that's what i can find . As long as you preserve your cord voltage drop to a minimum you then should be adequate , observe i do use ferrite middle noise suppressors on every end of the longer wires. And that i run them separate however close collectively . Playstation im installing in the out islands in bahamas so accurate twine and other objects isn't usually to be had we use what we've . Voltage drop in cables is a nicely understood engineering calculation . Knowing the cable size appearance up in a cord chart the resistance in step with foot , times that by using the length and you have a complete resistance ,when you have two equal sized wires divide the resistance in half of , subsequent calculate your contemporary draw , 30 kw with forty eight volts is 30,000 /forty eight = 625 amps, at 625 amps to lose simplest 1volt you would need a resistance decrease then .0015 ohms a meter of four/zero is .00016 ohms 2/zero is .0002 and 1/zero is .0003 ohms in keeping with meter . A ten meter run at 625 amps might want a single 2/zero cord at .002 ohms. Now 1 volt is a fair loss you said it changed into for occasional 1 hr use so to have a lack of 650 watts/hr in the wire could be acceptable, in a in use all the time grid feed like i've at 24 kw i desired less loss so i aimed at a lower voltage lack of .1 volts . I would suggest runs of 4/zero or bigger wire will will let you run for longer durations if wished with out to an awful lot wire loss, the other region to don't forget is how low a voltage your inverters can take , appearance up the spec if 48 volts is it, then the 1 volt your loosing can also restriction your lower battery reduce of set point. This is not normal sun engineering however a special case.
