There is not much information to provide a good answer. What components does your system comprise of? What are the circumstances surrounding your findings?
I'll hazard a guess though and suspect that your battery is full and no energy is going into it and therefore the load power is equal to the solar power.
My spec is quattro 24v 8000va I have a temporary setup with two panels of 2 500w just keep it ticking over with a 150/85 mppt along with a color gx I have noticed that the more I make the more DC is used and I have screen shots of this but the load isn't any different ? As you can see the DC load goes up a d down with the solar yield . The only load is the colour GX obviously the losses in the inverter and the mppt so how it goes up and down is beyond me
Why do you have DC enabled or what additional DC energy resources? Do you have a generator or wind turbine connected?
I'm just wondering why is the AC load so low? I don't think it can get this low, even in search mode?
Is there some way it may possibly not being measured correctly on the VE Bus? Like a faulty ethernet cable?
my 24v 3000w Phoenix inverter sits at 100watts minimum on the AC load, (in Std mode.)
DC power is only the BMV and Venus GX, which fluctuates between 3 and 17 watts.
I'm curious why your reported AC load, including running the Quattro is so low?, but the DC load is quite high, if only the Victron monitoring is running off it?
My suspicion is that the solar charger is wired to the wrong side of the BMV current shunt (directly to the battery) - accordingly the charge going into the battery is not being measured and the error is calculated to be a 'DC load'.
I recommend to confirm that the wiring for ALL loads AND charge sources are connected to the correct side of the shunt & only the battery is connected to the other side. Maybe take a photo of the shunt & associated wiring so that we can review.
Alternatively, if you don't have a BMV (you don't say) & are using the Quattro as the battery monitor, possibly the 'Use solar charger current to improve VE.Bus SOC' option is not active or actually working properly.
Also check that the correct battery monitor is selected in the CCGX, under 'System Setup' > 'Battery Monitor'. If you have a BMV then that should be selected.
Lastly, if you have no real 'DC loads' connected (like a 24v pump, 24v lighting, etc.) then you should NOT have 'has DC loads' activated - it will only confuse things. The small DC power draw of the CCGX can be neglected.
