ESS - Strange behavior when fully charged

I have a problem with my Victron.

When the batteries are fully charged, Victron is switching between charging and discharging. at 100% SoC it starting discharging about with 250W for few seconds, then slowly reducing the discharge, then switching to charge again, charging with 250W slowly reducing the charge and start discharging again. There is excessive PV power so the discharge is going to the grid. See video below.

Just in case I'm also attaching my settings from VE Config:

Is it "normal" behavior? is it healthy for the batteries? Should it just charge to 100% and stay there until there is not enough of PV power to balance the load???

@Mysik I dont see a PV inverter programmed into your ess assistant there. If you did you should see something similar to the picture. What PV inverter are you using?

@Mysik Because your PV yield and loads are always changing the ESS is having to work to recalculate all the time, it takes a few milliseconds for ESS to react. So when a load increases the inverter will pull from the battery to meet the new demand then replace the charge as soon as possible using the pv to meet your keep battery charged setting. In a DC coupled inverter system the battery is there for reactive power.

hello,

not very clear for me your sentence :

"" In a DC coupled inverter system the battery is there for reactive power.""

i will attach also a diagram for reactive power in an ESS system.

thank you,

hello again,

regarding regulator reaction in a ESS system, is appear for me and attached diagram that increasing time for more load demanding is OK , but for decreasing power on load ,time on regulator reaction is too long.

during day time and enuff sun on sky can be OK, but for night time when energy injected in grid is from battery, is NOT OK.

i was waiting for an answer of Victron specialists that need to be involved in the problems related to their products.

is to less or too much?.....
