I will be hanging new PV tomorow morning and would apriciate some input.
I have a new Easysolar 5000 hooked up to a BYD 13.8 kW Lithium pack.
Obviously I will set the MPPT as directed in the manual, which I havent read yet, but I am also aware that the BYD battery manager, via the CCGX is going to 'manage' things.
What I dont know is how it will manage things, what I should look for to establish that all is well and if I need to make any changes to the MPPT settings, which I assume I will.
My supplier told me I needed a programming cable, USB to VE Direct I think, which I have but I havent found what I should be doing with it yet...
I still have manuals to read but the BYD manual dosnt mention MPPT settings, speciffically, and thus far I am unsure what software I need to program the MPPT in the first place. In addition The manuals for Victron kit havent, so far at least, been speciffic about BYD kit and I am not expecting the MPPT manual to be any different.
Am I correct in assuming I unplug the cable to the CCGX to program the BluePower and if so is VEConfigure what I need or something else.?
Any help/pointers would be appriciated. I am pretty sure there is potential to get this wrong and I would rather not do that, damaging 6k's worth of battery because I used the wrong setting is not a place I want, or can afford, to be.
