Topic starter  

I just purchased another UPower/PowerJack 6000w inverter and a couple of years ago @sid here on the Forum had recommended I install a capacitor on the output of the inverter. I forget exactly what he recommended and where to install it.

 

Also I was wondering if there's any other modifications I can do to the inverter to either increase its output or make it more stable, clean up the sine wave, or anything else that's worth doing to increase the inverters performance.

 

Any recommendations would be appreciated thank you

So you'd want to figure out which transformer lead goes directly to the front panel (without going to the AC board)...you'll want to put a ~4.7 or 10uF 250v AC-rated cap from that leg to the Neutral output.  (Typically L2 - N.)  In a PJ inverter, only one of the output phases has an AC filter cap on it--but both phases need filtered.
