Generator Stop after Grid is available

System:

Two Quattros - setup in SplitPhase

ACin1 has a generator

ACin2 has the grid

Four MPPT Solar controllers with a total of 56 panels

Large Battery managed by internal BMS that communicates with Venus.


Venus configures:

ESS Configured

Generator Start when SOC is at 45%

Generator Stop when SOC is at 90%


Should buy from grid if it SOC falls under 50%,

Should charge Battery with solar


The problem: during the night time if the system gets to under SOC 45% because of grid failure, the system turns on the generator, if a few minutes later grid is available, it does not shutoff the generator. In my case an hour later I had plenty of sun to charge the battery. I have not been able to tell the system to prefer the use of grid over generator.


Is there a way to fix this?

You can program in quiet hours to prevent the generator starting up near the time you know you will have pv soon.
