BYD Overvoltage MPPT shutdown

Hi all

Strange occurrence, GX alarm battery Overvoltage at 55.1V with BYD batteries.

8kVA

RS 450/100 MPPT, tracker 1: 5 x Longi 450Watt (231V) tracker 2: 8 x Longi 450Watt (381V) It's within minimum spec for Float V of 52.5V

BYD comms working on GX (BYD shutsdown if comms aren't working)

BYD is supposed to control both MPPT and inverter for charging, but I set up charge tab to 54bulk and 52.5 float in any case. Battery monitor is on, at 400Ah, 98% and 0.99 efficiency.

What seems to be happening is that when generator is on, AC2 input, and the battery reaches 100%, the voltage climbs beyond 54V over to 55.2 is highest I saw with incessant alarms.


Switching off gen input seems to stop the problem, but no AC mains was available to test during this phenomenon, and solar yield had dropped too low to test with it.


MPPT shutdown on overvoltage, error #29.


What I don't understand is why BYD didn't control the situation as it is supposed to......

Also:

MPPT set up to 53.5V bulk and 52.5V float.

Did you turn on DVCC on the Victron GX? This is required to allow BYD BMS to control mppt and inverter

We have found with the BYD you need to limit the charge voltages in DVCC as well to 55.2v so make sure it is on as @Mysik mentioned.

BYD recommend different voltage to the one you are using.
