I'm in the process of filling in the commissioning paperwork for my DNO with regard the install of my Victron ESS system.
I've fitted the MPII 48/5000 GX (4.4kW) and I have my existing SolarEdge PV Inverter (3.68kW) on ACOut1 such that during LOM I can still charge the battery with Solar. Communication between the two is via the SolarEdge Modbus system. A twisted pair is also fitted between the inverters for the dry contact to set the SolarEdge inverter into Alternative Power Source (APS) mode and enable frequency shifting. This is tested and working.
The DNO sees my configuration, blindly, as 2 generators with total capacity of 4.4 + 3.68 = 8.08kW total. They have permitted me a maximum export of 32A thus ~7.19kW @ 230V.
My first question, assuming the ultimate worst case scenario:
- Batteries exporting to grid (4.4kW)
- No house loads (un-realistic)
- Solar at Max Generation (3.68kW)
Is this even feasibly possible, when the PV is mounted on ACOut1? I.e. Can the MPII 48/5000 allow pass-through from ACOut1 (Solar PV) to ACIn and thus to Grid *as well as providing an additional 4.4kW from the batteries to grid*?
If it's not, is there any documentation that I can send to the DNO as evidence that this max 8.08kW is never achievable for my configuration?
Lets say this can happen, I can limit the grid feed-in to 7.0kW via software which should put me under the 7.19kW limit. That's an administrator task and password protected. Would this be acceptable to a UK DNO to avoid the G100 problems?
This Victron G100 document 'https://midsummerwholesale.co.uk/pdfs/victron-g100-declaration-multi.pdf' doesn't really reflect the more modern Victron systems and especially a MP with GX built in.
Anyone had a similar situation that can offer any advice?
Thanks in Advance,
