Hola fron Spain
Ive just had a new lagoon 380
fitted with the following
550w solar panels
with victron 60a MPPI controller
2 additional 140Ah wet cell batteries (total 700Ah)
victron BMV 600s battery monitor
My question is, I expect the BMV 600 to show amp in when the solar
is outweighing the amps out, however ther is no change in the I value (amps) when they are running. It only shows the amps out.
The only time I see a change is if I strat the engine
and the alternator
shows 40amps in on the monitor
last night I checked the monitors values and are as below
12 hours later the values are
its been pretty windy ( 15-20k )but not much sun so it seems the wind gen is working.
voltage is up, I guess this is a good thing.
state of charge is down
and CE (total amps out is only 4 amps down) even though tthe fridge would have used around 30Ah
My question is...if the battery voltage has risen, why hasnt the SOC
why cant I see a positive reading for amps in from my wind gen and solar
The main reason I had the BMV 600 installed is to be able to monitor input from solar and wind. Maybe its been installed incorrectly?
Thanks for any tips or advice. Im finding the whole problem confusing but interesting!
