How to detect Float Mode on Schneider MPPT80
Anyone have any thoughts on how to detect when this or any MPPT charge controller switches from Bulk to Float in a 3 stage charge pattern? My thinking is that in Bulk mode, I know the battery is taking in and I'm getting all the solar output the charge controllers can produce. Once they go into float mode they may only need 1-2k of the 10k available to them to top off the battery from the array. Time to kick in some 48v dump loads and do some water heating or other loads to consume a little more of what's available in this off grid configuration.
