Muliplus 2 48/5000/70-50 and Pylonteck UP5000 batteries

Hi all

Looking at installing a Multiplus 2 48/5000/70-50 with Pylontech UP5000 units. Reading the following it seems the minimum number of US2000C batteries is 4 for a 48/5000. It's going to be configured as a ESS system with no essential loads

Victron & Pylontech UP2500, US2000, US3000, US2000C, US3000C, UP5000, Phantom-S, Force-L1 & L2 [Victron Energy]

I have a 4kw PV, AC tied which is an East / West split so it never goes above 2.2kw of PV at anyone time, however, at some point I may add another 2 * 375w panels to a MPPT charger

Is it ok to start off with 2 UP5000 batteries on this inverter and add a 3rd / 4th later?

By my calculation I need at least 3 UP5000's, each one's surge discharge is 4320 watts so 2 only gives 8640 watts where the inverter max surge is 10,000 watts

Edit. looks like my info for the 5000 was incorrect, looks like the surge discharge is actually 120-200 amps which is 5760w - 9600w, so, in theory, 2 UP5000's should be fine

Anyone installed this inverted with only 2 UP5000's to start with - any problems at all?

Thanks

Hi,

I'm running the MultiPlus II 5000 with 3x Pylon US3000C, which is 10,5 kWh, you're planning to run 10kWh which should be just fine.

Best regards,

Cordy
