Equalization current for flooded batteries questions
Having replaced a Morningstar TS 60 PWM controller with a Schneider 60-150 MPPT, i've noticed during equalization the Schneider has an algorithm completely different from that of the Morningstar. The Schneider has a one hour EQ with a high current, ~25 amps on a 24V nominal 260Ah battery, battery Ah is programed correctly. The Morningstar on the other hand has a 3 hour EQ at a much lower current, usually around 6 amps if memory serves me right. Many say that an elevated voltage with low current is the normal profile. So the question is, does Schneider assume, being a solar charger, there may not be enough hours in the day to fully charge then do an extended EQ of 3 hours, hense the one hour at higher currents and if so could this in fact be detrimental, your thoughts and opinions will be greatly appreciated.
