Epever Tracer series MPPT max current bypass
The Epever Tracer series MPPT comes with various max current handling. I have one that is rated for 40A. Is it possible to increase the max 40A rating without damaging the controller by implementing additional cooling?
What i would want to know is how does the controller know that it has reach the 40A max? Is it that the controller monitors the temperature so once the heatsink or mosfets reach a certain temperature then the current limiting capability kicks in so therefore the temperature/current does not pass that level so therefore if you have additional cooling on it to keep the mosfets/heatsink cool at all times you can trick the controller to produce more current output than the rated 40amp?
Or is it that the current limiting features kicks in base upon some I.C or circuit/sensor to know when you reach 40A max so in essence there is no way to bypass that feature?
Reason for my question is due to the fact that my epever tracer is rated at 12/24v 40A 1040Watt. I have (4) 320watt panels which total is 1280watt so that surpass the max wattage by 240watt and i would like to be able to can draw close to the 1280watt which would be that i would be pulling more than max 40amp from the controller so I would like to hear your comments on this regard.
