Prioritizing PV for charging routine.

I am planning my ESS.

I have 3rd party MPPTs directly charging the batteries through a BMV.

There's a Quattro with loads both on the AC in and the AC out and a CG meter preventing export at the grid connection point.

I want to optimize self consumption, but I want to prioritize the PV for loads and charging the batteries during the day. Using the grid to supplement loads.

I only want to use the grid for charging from late afternoon onwards, say if a set SOC criteria has not been achieved during the day.

However at night an acceptable amount of discharge will be allowed to a lower SOC.

In other words, I want my batteries fully charged ready for the night, every night.

I want to cycle the batteries during the night, and I want solar to be given priority to re-charge the batteries the next day.

Can it be set up like this?

Ah, yes

"4.4 Venus-device - Scheduled Charging"

in the manual will do the trick nicely.

Sure it can. I recommend to contact your local Victron Distributer/Installer for planing
