MultiPlus II: dynamic load cut-off voltage

Hello,

is there a setting for a "dynamic load cut-off" in the MultiPlus II? I'm using a 24V system (with lead acid batteries) and i've set the cut-off voltage of the inverter to 22.4V (via the MK3 interface). This is working good, but i'm looking for a setting, wich "calculate" the cut-off voltage under a load condition.

For example, if i there is a 2kW load, the battery voltage will drop down to 21V (but that is ok, because there is a load). The inverter should not cut-off this load. But with my current settings, the inverter cut-off the load under 22.4V...

Could you please give me a hint? Or is this not possible with the MultiPlus II?


Thanks!

Klaus

Thanks for answering!

But I think, what I was searching for is the SOC. I've enabled the battery monitoring and let the inverter cut-off under 50% SOC (and restart at >55%). In the first days, this worked well but after 2 weeks, SOC is "incorrect calculated", i think...


I'm charging four 220Ah lead-acid 12V batteries (2p2s -> 24V system) with the Victron MPPT 100/30 solar charger. In the Multiplus setting, i configured the battery capacity to 440Ah. I've used the "flooded battery" preset for my batteries, set the efficiency to 0.8 and the bulk-capacity to 85% (default).


But the SOC stuck around 50% the last days, despite the batteries were (nearly) full charged by the MPPT solar charger. The voltages of the (new) batteries are approx. 12.8 V. So what is happening here? Is it, because I'm (almost) not using the internal charger of the Multiplus, but the MPPT solar charger?

Thanks!

Inverter calculated SOC is not accurate at all.


You need to get a SmartShunt (or a BMV which also has a shunt), for a more accurate SOC, but even then it won't be perfect.


Battery voltage is a much better way to cut off the inverter to protect the battery from over-discharge.

This is possible for sure when using ESS (check 6.3). You can manually adjust those 4 voltages.


I do not know if it is possible without using ESS.

have a look in the assistants area under programmable relay option in there you can see many settings one can control the AC2 out relay on the mutiplus thus you could control any loads attached to that put. you can also set multi conditions ie voltage and load and both have to be met etc etc
