I'm not sure if this is the correct place to ask for new/improved features.. But here I go.
Im using Victron ESS with BatteryLife. In this weather there can be a week or two with clouds and almost no PV output, and then suddenly there's a day with lots of sunshine where I generate up to 20 kWh day.
However, due to the previous bad weather.. BatteryLife has increased the active soc limit to a high number, 85% in my situation currently.
I would like to request a additional feature ('partial BatteryLife') that limits the active SoC Limit 50% for a couple of reasons:
- AFAIK 50% SoC is ideal for Li-Ion batteries or atleast is better than running at 90-100% SoC for days or maybe even weeks.
- It allows for increased self-consumption by having 50% of the battery capacity available instead of sometimes just 5% if Active SoC limit is 95%
I don't see any disadvantages to having the Active SoC Limited to 50%
