I'm looking to purchase a Victron SmartSolar Charge Controller 250/100.
I currently have six 12v lithium batteries and four 24v 320w solar panels (4×320=1280 total watts). The 250/100 manual states that the Nominal PV Power for a 12v is 1450 W and that the Nominal PV Power for a 24v is 2900 W.
My question before purchase: Since my solar panels (PV) are 24v, does that mean I could increase my solar panel total wattage up to 2900 W or is it capped at 1450 W because of my 12v batteries running a 12v house electrical system?
To avoid confusion, please note that I DO understand that I would also need to stay under the Maximum Open Circuit Voltage of 250 V (that maximumPV wattage isn't the only concern) and that the SmartSolar Controller is capable of converting 24v PV to 12v batteries.
Thanks for your time. I can't afford to make a mistake here, so I just want to be sure that I can add more 24v solar panels in the future.
