I have purchased the following devices and I am starting to setup the system on my Boat, where I have a Starter Battery and a House Battery:
- Blue Power Charger 12 30 3
- Smart solar MPPT 100 30
- Orion-TR Smart 12 12 - 30
- Smart Battery Protect 12/24 100
- BMV-712 Smart
- 2 x Victron 12V 175W Mono Solar Panels
My question relates to situation in which these devices will all be working at the same time.
The AC/DC and DC/DC Charger, will rarely do that, as I will either be on Shore Power or on Engine Power, but there could be very rare instances of the engines being run while on the dock for a few minutes when also still connected on Shore power.
My main concern is the MPPT Solar Charger running at the same time as the DC/DC Charger when under way and in daylight. But technically, if I am in the situation described above at the dock, all three chargers could be working at the same time, for some short period of time.
Can this damage the devices or the Battery? At present the Battery is a AGM 100Ah Deep Cycle but I will soon be replacing it with a LiFePO4.
Can someone please recommend the best way to setup this system? Am I better off switching manually things on off based on the usage? Or can I setup the devices parameters in such a way that they will automatically stop working at the right time based on the voltage produced by other devices?
I would appreciate some guidance and help.
Thank you in advance,
