Sunsaver MPPT bulk charge setting?

SystemSystem Posts: 2,511 admin
I was looking at the custom settings in my new Sunsaver MPPT controller, and I only see a place to change the Absorption and Float voltage.

Does the Bulk voltage basically run up to where the absorption is set? Then switch into absorption at that point when the current drops? So the absorption voltage is the top setpoint for the bulk phase?


Thanks

    Exactly, the Absorption Voltage is the transition from Bulk to Absorb charging phases.

    Thank you! That settles that.

    bb is correct and there was some confusion for a time about bulk voltage. bulk voltage slowly rises as the battery charges, but changes to absorb as soon as the absorb voltage is reached making bulk voltages as irrelevant.
