We have a trouble free Victron setup in our camper van and would like to use quality Victron equipment in our home for an ESS system.
We have 2.25kw array and a Sunnyboy SMA inverter which is approx 10 years old on a uk feed in tariff.
We would like to use the Multiplus 2 48/3000 but with just one Pylon 2000C or one Pylon 3000C.
I understand that ideally 2 of the above should be used, is there any way to change settings in the Multiplus 2 to accept just one battery and what effect would this have on its performance?
We currently use a solar iboost to divert excess generation to our hot water tank. Will this work using ESS and if so will the batteries charge first then hot water or vice versa?
This has a current sensing clamp to detect excess power.
We would add another battery at a later date when we can afford more.
Many thanks for your help.
