Re: Victron solar regulator, custom settings for Trojan T105s.

After trying to read the Trogan literature, reading several blogs, and trying to marry my Batt Chgr output, my windgen controller, and the Victron Solar Controller, I have set mine with absorption: 14.5v, Float: 13.5v, and Equalization: 16.2v. It's been working OK now for 3 years, but there's always room for improvement. We're running 6 T-105s, wired as 3-12v batts, each connected to a common busbar with the solar and windgen connected to that busbar too.

Youíve described a practically identical setup to mine. 6 x T105s wired as 3 x 12 v and a windgen on top of the solar. But I donít have a mains powered battery charger.

Iím curious to know, how much solar and what is your approximate daily average power consumption?
