Just installed a Victron MPPT
smart controller. It has a "load" output, that can be programmed in multiple ways.
I've connected a computer+USB charger
. The idea being that I don't want to charge batteries
, for the sake of efficiency.
I am wondering if I should also connect the water
maker to load. It is never used at night, so that would appear to make sense.
My question is : does it make a difference for the batteries? I thought that when solar
is plenty, electricity would flow to loads without drawing on the battery
. So there would be no meaningful difference between the regulator's "load" and the usual connection via a distribution panel.
Can someone explain to me what "load" is meant to do?
