Battery Life not working correcly?

Hi all!

I am not sure that Batterylife is working correctly in my system.

Using 3 phase Quattro-II 5000/48 System in ESS Mode and Batterylife is activated. Last Winter Batterylife is working fine.

During Summertime Batterylife algorithmus was not necessary because of high sun power, the battery reached 100 % SoC every day. So my minimum SoC is staying at 20 % the whole summer.

The last few days sun become rare and my Battery does not reach 70% SoC for 3 days, SoC is now under 30 %, my minimum SoC still remaining on 20 %. Discharging has not been stopped and the minimum SoC has not been raised from 20% to 25%. Why?

Is it necessary that the minimum SoC is reached one time for reactivating back the batterylife algorithmus? I dont understand why my minimum SoC is not adapted accordingly to the momentary missing of sun power.

Any hints appreciated.

Sincerely Marc

Just to clarify, the minimum SOC is what you set, this won't change.

The active SOC is what will change.

The system will adjust by 5% per day using the following algorithm (extract from the manual):

On a technical level, BatteryLife increases the dynamic lower charge limit by 5% for each day that a good state of charge was not reached. The value is increased once a day when the battery reaches the lower limit for the first time. When the battery reaches 85% SoC on the day, the increment for that day is canceled and the limit remains the same as the previous day. If the battery reaches 95% on any day, the dynamic discharge limit is lowered by 5%. The result is that the battery reaches a healthy charge of between 85% and 100% SoC every day

There is one side note:

It raises this level by 5% each day until the energy which the system draws from the batteries during a 24hr period matches the energy being replaced

thank you for your answer.

this is exactly what says the manual, and yes i mixed up minimum SoC and active SoC.

my question was: my minimum SoC is set to 20%, why does the active SoC not change while sun power is not sufficient and the SoC of the battery has not reach 70 % for 3 days.

It should adjust, if BL is active.

Is the GX up to date on its software?

Have you tried rebooting it?

Do you have any customisations that are running- assistants, node red etc?
