Morningstar Tristar controler and MSView anomalies
Been in contact with Morningstar and the guy has been brilliant but im starting to feel bad about having to keep returning to him for each thing as i come across them , realized others have had issues that they have solved or Morningstar has advised them so maybe they can pass on any that are relevant .
My panels are 36 cell PV 12v wired into pairs and 60 cell PV 24v cells per panel total output 1120 watts at 24v . Manufacturers are BP and Atersa .
Have tried resting my batteries before taking the readings so the only consumption was the TS-60 .nothing in or out . The voltage variations were still present , battery voltage did rise and so did the readings on the controller but the disparity remained .
The Sense voltage should be the same as the batteries and if it is taken off the controller it is , its only when its on the controller does the contact show it to be 0.03v lower ie: battery 29.7 controller contacts 30v .
Below is what i have established so far
TS-60 PWM Firmwear Version v01.04.14
MULTI METER MSView shows
BATTERY VOLTAGE 0.3 to 0.5 Higher
BATTERY SENSE VOLTAGE 0.2 to 0.3 Lower 0.2 to 0.3 Higher
ARRAY VOLTAGE 0.3 to 0.04 higher
AMPHOUR TOTAL Far Higher Than Could Ever Be Possible
KILOWATT HOURS None Registered but AMPHOURS shows there should be some
MIN VOLTAGE Never Been Below 24v but it says 7.65v
These Below All Seem To Be Correct
Ah ( Resettable )
PWM DUTY CYCLE
