I’ve been trying to find a suitable charge controller to add my hydro power in to my current system. I’m now using a Tristar TS-45 in charge controller mode, and although my hydro generator is capable of supplying 800 to 1000 Watts, the BYD B-Box battery is only receiving approx 270W. Just as with my diesel generator, whenever I switch on a hungry electrical appliance, the charge input rises to match the load, then immediately drops back to the low rate after the load is stopped.
Any thoughts on how to fix this? I’ve updated all the firmware.
