Stu, what harm will come from such usage if he monitors voltage and current
? As he says, the panel voltage will be dropped to some reasonable value, and the max output of the panels
will be less than 8 amps.
The reason I ask is that I have a bypass switch on our main controller, and we have it switched out for most all situations. Our Vmax is lower (~20 volts) and our bank a bit larger (440 ah), but I can't see what harm he will do... care to explain? We've been doing this for many years!
