Hi, here is the situation and information on the setup:
3 X 325W HIT panels: Vpm=57.6v, Voc=69.6v
2 X 245W HIT panels: Vpm=44.3v, Voc=53v
The panels are like on the attached picture.thge two 245W panels are closer to the mast and are more subject to shading than the 3x325W which should be clear of shading 100% of the time.
We have a LIFEPO4 48v bank
Given that these controllers need > 5v between Vbat and Vpm and the fact a half discharged bank is still around 53.6v I believe we cannot have the 325W panels in parallel, which sucks.
What would be our best option here to maximise the amps given the info above?
