I have a 3 Phase ESS system with 3 x 10KvA Quattros, 5 x 250v 100a VE Can MPPTs and 560ah of lead acid battery,
When set on Battery Life - self consumption - Min SOC 80%-no feedback- the system works well until battery reaches 80% SOC. At this stage the system reverts to feeding from grid directly to load and solar array reduces to almost nil.
Why is solar not supplying load? - There is plenty of sun
Same settings - battery at 91.5%, solar putting out 5622w, load is at 9890w. 790w is being taken from battery and 4756w is being taken from grid.
Why is battery not supplying load?
I have a feeling there is an incorrect setting somewhere but cannot find it.
I set up some days ago a ESS System mit 1x Multiplus-II GX 3000, 2x Multiplus-II 3000, 8 x Pylontech 2000 USB, 1x EM24 Ethernet - it worked great without problems. The PV is installed on the AC GRID. In the past days PV was only able to charge the battery uo to 85% SOC during the day. Today sun was much better and the batterie was charged upto 92% SOC. I got four alerts from Pylon BMS that there is overvoltage. The whole system worked after those error message until this evening.
Therefore I stopped the system in the evening and set the Absorption voltage from 52.00 V down to 51.60 Volt with VE-Config. I did it of course for all three units.
After restart of the system I run in problems.
Very soon after starting the system the GX display showed "ESS #3,4" and some time later GX display showed ESS Discharge.
I know from this document, that this error code reads as:
Which explains my problem. But why?
With the Remote console it shows "Passthru"
I found a lot of threads here, but I wasn't able to find a solution for my problem. I checked in the ESS documentation Q4:
Q4.1: The Grid meter is online, visible and sending actual data
Q4.2: The Pylontech batterie is visible and sending actual data and shows that there 8 batteries, because the charge current is 200A DCL
Q4.3: CCL = 170 A | DCL = 200 A
Q4.4: SOC = 84%, very little AC loads in the moment.
Q4.5: There was no change in the GRID code it is set for Germany from the very beginning to
I switch all of, Pylon batteries as well, removed PLUS cable from batterie, All Pylons looks good and are running, no alert LED is on.
I setup all 3 Multiplus again with the old setup file I used before with absorption voltage at 52,00 V - it didn't help.
I redid the whole setup from very beginning - no positive result.
I set the Multiplus to factory value, I couldn't reset the grid code by not having the neccessary password, but again same problem ...
I use as ESS software the actual release candidate 2.60~15 - can it be possible that there is a software bug wich causes my problem?
Any idea, what can be wrong? What can I do!
Any suggestion are more than welcome.
