I'm in the process of setting up a PV system on our cruising sailboat. Because of the limited real estate on deck, I've been able to come up with the following panel configuration (all nominally 12V mono flexible):
These are split symmetrically along the boat, so there is partial/complete shading at times.
My battery bank is 1050Ah/12V, though I can still reconfigred to 24V if anyone can see a huge benefit (and get a DC-DC converted for the 12V consumers).
I'm playing with the idea of getting 2x Victron 100/50 controllers (for the 250W and 160W panels), and a 100/20 for the 100W. Are there any issues connecting the output of two types of controllers in parallel?
Is there a way of setting up a single monitoring display without messing around with BT dongles, or do I neet to get 3 MPPT Control panels?
