Evening, am based in Zimbabwe, have set up 2 Victron Quatrro 8Kva systems, each with 12 x Jinko 385watt Mono panels, through Victron MPPT 150/100 smartsolar can, 3 each pylontech batteries -
1st - AC1 in is either generator or grid, no AC2 in connected
2nd - AC1 in is generator, AC2 in is grid
i used the "other - not compliant to any grid code standard" in the grid code selection
then used the ESS assistant
on the venus GX - as attached
this works fine when i have grid power - there is no feed in to the grid - when i set the grid set point above 300watts.
however when i run the generator during the day when there is plenty of sun on the panels, but generator power is required to run other loads not connected to the inverter, which feeds either into AC 1 in or AC 2, as there is ESS enabled, this seems to cause the inverter to hum loudly and switch between mains and inverting very rapidly
is there a way in which i can shut down the ess when i run the generator - or is there another way in which i can set up the system to run but make maximum use of the panel array wheter i run generator or grid?
