Yes you need to manually adjust from 12 to 32 amps based upon the supply rating. Otherwise it will work anywhere.

I'm hitting about 252 volts with the solar from about noon to 3.
My leaf doesn't seem to mind.
Surprised your inverter doesn't do a better job of regulating output voltage? You are not charging with DC directly from the panels? How do you get 252 V from an inverter, mostly they invert to 120V..... We have the same system here, panels batteries Outback.....
That's what happens when you add 30 amps to a circuit with no load.
The enphases are doing exactly what they are supposed to.
All the 120v micro inverters I have ever seen appear to be garbage.
There's no way I know of to charge a car with DC directly off the panels and if there was I wouldn't want to pay for it.
To rephrase the original question, I am under the impression that you charge batteries and run off an inverter- which inverter do you have with 240V output? just curious what is available these days.....

All the enphase grid tie micro inverters I have seen as long as I can remember have been 208v and 240v.
No battery, I'm grid tie.
