Way to start and stop an inverter

Post by hary » Thu, 11 Apr 2019, 13:31

Hi everyone.

I've videos were people start or stop load already plugged in inverter from the inverter"s switch interrupter.

Is that a way to go with no bad side effect ?

Or should be the inverter started first, then plug the load, use it, unplug the load and last switch OFF the inverter ?

Inverters seem to be happy starting with a load connected. So I don't think it matters.
