Smart MPPT 100/50 stops charging system until I cycle power. What conditions could stop charging? Where can I read up on this?
Is the charger still saying it's in Bulk charging mode but not actually charging?
Also, does it stay like this permanently or for less that 30 minutes or so?
The reason I ask is I get this with 5 x SmartSolar chargers I have randomly. They go to almost 0W but then recover after an apparently random period of time that can be up to half an hour if not longer. If I power cycle them they start working again instantly.
I raised this issue on this forum but never got to the bottom of it so I ended up writing my own NodeRed script to turn them off/on if this happens to minimise the issue. Example below (with NodeRed correcting the issue):
Another possibility is the charger thinks the batteries are charged but In this case the charger would either be in Absorption or Float mode.
Additional resources still need to be added for this topic
