Ack sorry no.
Solar panels produce DC.UPS' use DC batteries.A charges B.
As far as conversion to AC goes , 3-phase is not required.....as long as the DC converter(inverter) produces single phase (sinewave) AC you are golden.....The crossover switchgear is prolly 500 $.
Now I *might* not be able to use the ups' as charge controllers , thats cool......but they can provide conversion.If these ups' can handle 15 mins , they *should* do 24/7........But I can build a real inverter from scratch so no big whooop.
This will be a cool experiment !
