SOC en dessous du SOC mini

Bonjour à tous

J'ai un problème avec le soc mini de mes batteries Byd qui étant réglé à 20% descend parfois en dessous (18%) et provoque la charge des batteries à partir du réseau. Ce problème intervient surtout en fin de nuit et provoque la coupure du disjoncteur réseau car la charge des batteries (48v 80A limité par DVCC) et mes autres charges sont supérieures au réglages du disjoncteur réseau.

Si je descends DVCC en dessous de 80A, je ne bénéficie pas de la pleine puissance PV en journée pour recharger mes batteries.

Est-ce que l'on peut régler le problème du soc qui descend en dessous du soc mini ou bien est ce que l'on peut interdire la recharge à partir du réseau?

Quattro AC Input Current Limit ignored on Pass Thru

Two Phase ESS setup with 2 x 48/8000/110 Quattros, 15kVA three phase generator with Titan 48/50 Charger on third phase.

Firmware: CCGX 2.53~2, Quattos 469.

Generator on AC-IN-1 with current limit of 14 Amps. All good while loads are low and system in Bulk, charging battery. Current hovers around 12 - 14 Amps. The problem I have is when a large load turns on, the mode changes to "Pass Thru" and excessive current is drawn continuously from the generator. I was monitoring the system when the 3kW water heater came on. I watched the Quattro draw 27 Amps from the generator for 30 seconds before I turned the generator isolator off. This is virtually twice the limit set.

Dynamic Current Limiter - disabled

UPS Function - Enabled

Was going to try the "Dynamic Current Limiter" but the increase in current is not temporary. It matches the loads applied and completely ignores the “AC Input Current Limit”. Also I don’t want it working while connected to the grid.

Please advise if I’ve overlooked something.

Skylla BYD 48v charging, is it possible?

We have a system with 2 x 5kW Multiplus 2 in ESS. The customer also wants to have generator backup.

The Multiplus won't accept the generator on the NZ4777 grid code(via a changeover switch), so we need another way for it to work.

I'm wondering if we can charge the 48V BYD lithium battery bank via a separate 48v charger.

Has anybody done this?

Multiplus 2 - 3 Phase Output

Hey everyone

I have a project coming up requiring on grid battery backup, the load is a 3 phase lift and I have read the documentation and watched the training videos and believe 3 x Victron Multiplus II 5000's will get the job done, I wanted to make sure I wasn't missing anything or there's any additional information I should know about Multi's and 3 phase backup.

Required:

They are per-phase (415v 3 phase supply.)

-5.5kw per phase
(8.51 amps per phase @ 0.9PF)
(Noting max grid[starting] current is9.82A per phase, which is ~6.4kW @ 0.9PF..)

I have specified

  • 3 x Victron Multiplus !! 5000
  • 2 x BYD B-Box Pro 13
  • 2 x 6KW SMA Tri Powers

[SOLVED] BYD BBox Pro reading 0% SOC on CCGX but 100% on battery

Hi guys


I have a site that has a Multiplus II and CCGX. AC Coupled with an SMA Sunnyboy 5.0 inverter and BYD BBox Pro 13.8Kwh battery.


Everything was working really well up until about a month ago, the CCGX is reading the battery SOC to be 0% but the mulitplus is showing 55v (or 100% SOC) and the BYD battery is also showing 4 full LEDs so full as well.

I have tried resetting the entire system and it does the same thing.

Under voltage alarm on only Quattro not on BYD

Hello

I had multiple Undervoltage alarms/warnings on L1 Quattro in 3 phase setup out of sudden.

The LOG file shows BYD reporting normal 54.7 V voltage There was a normal load on the system and no overload recorded. The alarms were getting triggered randomly and the log shows wildly fluctuating VE bus voltage

Does the Ve bus take the voltage only from L1 Quattro?

I checked cable tightness in Quattro ( all three phases ) as well as on the LYNX busbar.

Will check later today the breakers and the individual battery module tightness. What else should I check? The system worked for the last 1 year without any major issues.


The system is ONgrid /ESS with 10 KWH BYD pro and 3 ph 5 KVA Quattro with 6 KVA Fronius and 250/70 Smartsolar

AC Coupling and BYD premium LVL 15.4

Hello,

I would like to know if there is any possible way to speed up frequency regulation by modifying the settings of the PV inverter assistant.

The system is off grid and consists of

- BYD LVL premium 15.4

- Bluesolar MPPT 150/60

- Quattro 48/8000

- Solaredge SE6000H (maximum expected PV-contribution is << 4500W)


The P(f) ramp at the Solaredge side is defined from 50.2Hz to 51.7Hz and disconnect @ 52Hz.

The Victron PV-Inverter assistant is configured for the same band with disconnect @ 52.1Hz. With 6000W inverter and 6400W PV.

I observe that once 55.2V are reached BYD sets the charging parameter to zero. However charging continues as the frequency ramp only rises slowly and therefore the SE inverter does not reduce its output fast enough. For now I throw off (via AC-OUT 2) the SE inverter once the voltage gets higher 57V. By that time frequency has only risen to 50.4Hz. Can the ramp rise time be shortened? Am I too carefull with the 57V limit? (cell details show almost 3.8V for the highest cell). Thank you in advance for your help and input!!

I'd like to use 1 or 2 B-Plus modules of my BYD B-Box Pro 7.5 system in another application, but I only have 1 BMU (the one that comes with the case). Is the use of a BMU mandatory, even if only 1 B-Pus module is used?

Discharging BYD LVL when sun is shining

Hi together!

I've installed a set of 6 Multiplus 3000 (two on each phase) with LVL 15,4 a few days ago.
Yesterday, when i checked the charts i got a "suprise". Our house uses 7kwh over night from battery, but over the day the LVL gets a charge of 20kwh.
Today I can see why. After the LVL reaches 100% it doesn't stop charging but switches between discharging and charging. All day long... Right now i've got over 9000watts of solar energy but LVL is discharging.
Seems as BYD BMU is faulty? My colleague has the same setup and exact the same "problem"

Anyone here with the same strange thing?

Li-Ion battery bank for PV AC Coupled

Dear All,

I have a grid-connected installation where there is about 10kWp of PV.

I wonder what size Li-Ion battery bank should I use.

According to Victron blog:

https://www.victronenergy.com/live/ac_coupling:start?_ga=2.137144624.1420485591.1544172331-1021279916.1539680797#lithium_batteries

I should use:

100Ah 48V bank for each 1,5kWp.

which means about

670Ah 48V battery bank.

Calculating that to kWh it is about 32kWh battery bank.

Then I should use 9x3,84kWh BYD LVS modules.

Is my calculation okay?


P.S.

Why cannot I use less capacity, for example, 20kWh (it allows me to charge my batteries with max 0,5C)?

What other criteria are taken in recommendations to give such huge battery banks?

HRC NH Fuse Types

Hi - Seen NH fuses used in many Vitron or Web Images and referenced in training videos, and propose to use the same. Noticed there are differing types of NH Fuse, and wanted to know which is best to use between BYD LVL and Main Busbar (which goes onward to Quattro /MPPT/GX). Types I've seen are:

- gG for cable and line protection

- aM for the short-circuit protection of switching devices in motor circuits

- gR or aR for the protection of power semiconductors

- gS: The new gS operational class combines cable and line protection with semiconductor protection.

Any recommendations on which is most appropriate? gS or does gG suffice?

BMV SMART-712 'Charged Voltage' & other settings for BYD B-PLUS 51.2V setup?

Hi from Christmas Island, with a couple of 100% off-grid, solar setups, each using a bank of 4 BYD B-PLUS 2.5. 2.56kWh, 51.2V, LFP Battery Units. I've installed a BMV SMART-712 shunt to hopefully give more accurate SOC, but am unsure on exact charge values I should dial in, really struggling to find answers online, and all businesses I've reached out to haven't really been able to give me any info. My system uses a Victron MultiPlus 48/3000 35-50 and a BlueSolar Charger MPPT 150/70.


Main question is - What should 'Charged voltage' be? I have it set to 56.8V (it was on 55.2V for ages which seems low and may explain why my batteries never seemed have much capacity). Some battery spec sheets (and written on battery itself) say "Working voltage: 44.8V-57.6V" but other spec sheets for the same battery say "Operating Voltage Range: 43.2~56.4V". If it's too low I worry i'm not getting full capacity from my battery (critical in my case), and if too high I worry I'll fry it somehow.


I'm more confident about the other settings, but would love some reassurance:

Discharge floor: 90% (I assume that's correct way around, not 10%)

Tail current: 4%

Charged detection time: 3m

Peukert exponent: 1.05

Charge efficiency factor: 98%? (I see mentions of only 'round trip efficiency 95-96%' on the battery specs though? Sounds low?)

Current threshold: 0.05A

Time-to-go averaging period: 3m


Thanks very much, I'd really appreciate some advice.

BYD LVL 15.4 - High Battery Voltage Warning

Hi,

since 2 days i've connected new BYD LVL 15.4 (two units) to a single MP-II 48/5000 together with 2 MPPTs chargers. Installation and configuration went smootly, following the Victron provided docs. All components running the lastest SW and no connection problems exists. Since the initial full charge i saw Voltage Warnings from the BMU (and on the CCGX following) - the Battery voltage is displayed at 55.3V and thus slightly above the documented limit. I though that CCGX (venus) is dynamically controlling the DC voltage receiving the changing limits from the BMU ? Any other option to correct in order to avoid these warnings ?

BYD BMS low current draw

Hi All,

Can anyone confirm if the low current draw issue on the BYD BMU was resolved? I.E If i current lower than 1A per module was drawn the BMU wouldn't acknowledge it and allow you to drain the batteries with a small load whilst still reporting it as being 100%.


In the comments section of the victron compatibility for the BYD batteries;

https://www.victronenergy.com/live/battery_compatibility:byd_b-box

Guy mentions in a comment that BYD are aware and are hoping they are working on a fix.


Has a fix been found?


I will probably use an external shunt anyway, but Guy mentions that it shouldn't be used to start a generator too based on SOC, which is exactly what i want to do with it.

BBox SOC making large jumps with little load/charge

Hi all

The SOC on my B-Box 10.25kw battery stack jumps by around 25% at certain points in the charge/discharge cycle.

This became a problem this morning as I was expecting a 4 hour power outage. I had the SOC at 50% overnight, in preparation. The SOC dropped from 45% to 20% in a few seconds during the outage - power draw was in the region of 1kw at the time.

Then when recharging, it bounced up 25% again almost instantly.

I looked at the batteries this morning and noticed that one of the units does not have flashing lights on it. Am I looking at a failure here?
