Hi all, I live in an off grid cottage and use a generator to charge my battery bank through a Multiplus 24/2000/50. I also fire up the generator to use high power appliances like power tools and washing machine etc.. I want to get started with solar but the question that really bugs me is this:
What if I start my generator while my batteries are already being charged by the solar array? Will the charge currents from the generator and the solar array add together and potentially overcharge the batteries?
Is this a stupid question because I can't find an answer anywhere? What is the ideal wiring setup for this system, keeping it as simple as possible?
