I'm wondering if there will be an issue here. To equalise our batteries (to get in the 31 - 33v range as specified by manufacturer) equalisation charging current is usually around 50 - 55A, due to the size of our battery bank (1380AH). So I'm wondering if this will allow correct EQ charging. If it tries to equalise 10% of charger capacity (70A) being 7A it won't work. Or does it refer to 10% of battery max charge current, which is much higher than the 70 amps this inverter can do. Are EQ settings customisable or am I misinterpreting it?
Specs from the battery manufacturer are as follows:
Equalisation current: 3.5% of C100 AH capacity (1380AH) gives us 48.3A. That sounds about right.
Should give voltage of 2.6 - 2.75 volts per cell (31.2 - 33v), thats about right, maybe at the lower end of the spectrum.
Interval: 20 days.
Duration: 2 hours.
They really do seem to need it at least once a month during winter, even with conservative DOD. I've attached documentation should you wish to view. Also note normal recharge maximum voltage should be 2.45v per cell, I believe that means absorption should be set to 29.4 volts. That was definitely the case with the PWM charge controller we inherited with the system.
So how to get multi to equilise correctly!
