What exactly does "Has DC System" mean and when is it required?

Dear community members

I understand from the manual the Has DC System option is used if one has for example a wind generator in addition to e.g. a smartsolar PV charger. So, for sake of clarity. I have a smartsolar which is of course DC, but nothing else so do I keep it off or why will I need it?

Secondly, DVCC, I turned it on to ensure the correct control of the Smartsolar charging parameters from my BlueNova BMS and more accurate readouts from the BMS to the Colour Control GX. Is my interpretation of the manual correct?

Finally, Shared Voltage / Temp sense is in my view best left turned off as the BMS should have the most accurate information being embedded in the battery? What do you think?

Thank you for your thoughts and experiences on the matter.

Kind regards

Etienne

Has DC system is for when you have DC sources or users that are not connected to the Venus, like if you have a wind generator connected to the DC bus. The Venus calculates the difference between what is used / provided by the connected devices and what the BMS (or BMV) is reporting to be DC use / source.


DVCC is indeed needed to let the system use the data provided by the BMS.


Shared Voltaged / Temp sense: I don't know the details about that.

For bluenova specifically, turn off the shared voltage and temperature sense. Turn on the dc system option only when you have an additional DC charging source

Besides what was explained above, you will also need "Has DC system" button activated on CCGX in case of any DC load connected to DC bus.
