I have 3 questions below.
1. Does the buck-boost integrate with the CG controller - ie will the charging from the alternator that is controlled / facilitated by the buck-boost show up on the energy summary inside the CG controller or is it simply assumed to be a "DC load"?
2. Is there a way to change the settings of the buck-boost using one of the Victron components or do you have to use a windows computer and a USB cable to do so? Specifically, I would like the ability to increase the maximum allowed charging from the buck-boost in case of higher than normal demand for a short while and then change it back. Ideally this would be accomplished through the CG controller and not a windows computer.
3. Where is the buck-boost output voltage (item 20 in the configuration screen) sensed? Is it at the output terminals of the buck-boost or at the battery. For example, I want to place the buck boost in the engine compartment next to the alternator and use the buck-boost to increase the voltage to 24 volts to charge a 24 volt Lithium battery. The cable run from the buck boost at the front of the vehicle to the battery in the back would result in a .4 volt loss along the cables when charging at maximum charge rate (and a small or zero voltage difference at low charging rate). Would the battery receive the voltage set in the buck-boost configuration (item 20), or would it see .4 volts less than this value? If the buck-boost does sense battery voltage and not output voltage, how is this information sent to the buck-boost?
