Generator to battery

Hi all

we have a setup where batteries are the main supply and then a generator is supplied once we reach a state of charge of 30%. we are using quattro 48/15000/200.

we seem to be having issues where when the system switches back to the batteries we have a blip in power causing interruptions to kit. is there a way to alter the any settings to stop this interuption.


we have already tried the UPS function to no avail.


kind regards

Try increasing the low voltage AC cut off from 180(default setting) up to say 207volts. the inverter follows the generator voltage down as the gen slows down and disconnects at 180volts this maybe to low for your equipment.

So play around with those settings and see how you go

Hi @Matt23

Take a look through this for clues.. https://www.victronenergy.com/live/multiplus_faq

Dynamic Current Limiter usually helps, but it could be any number of things.
