Help me set-up my system correctly please.
I posted a while ago about building a house off the grid and am at the stage where I have my solar system built and in place.
I would like some help and advice on making sure I have it set-up correctly to hopefully ensure a long life and efficient charging.
-What settings should I be looking for and set up on my Charge controller? times, voltages at each stage etc specifically
-What settings need to be in the rest of the system for making sure I'm not hurting anything?
-What is my best practice for battery care, upkeep, tips, and tricks?
-General advice pertaining to my particular set-up, that I may overlook.
Here is my set-up.
Im in Colorado at about 9000ft and have a great southern aspect for the panels
ME-AGS-N Auto Gen Start (not yet hooked up)
ME-BMK Battery Monitor Kit
MNDC125 or 200 DC Disconnect
ME PT-100 Controller
12x 305W Selivo Solar panels. 3.36kw ( 2 top of pole arrays 6 panels on each)
There are 3 strings of 2 panels on each pole
" the voltage Vmp will be 115V, and the current Imp will be 15.96A. worked out by Horsefly here on the forum"
Battery's Rolls Surrett S550 I have 16 in total they are 6V 428AH@20Hr
they are set-up as 2 strings of 8 in series to make 48v and the 2 strings in parallel so 48V 856AH@ 20Hr
Can I give any more info to help you help me?
