Over paneling a charge controller
My Renogy rover 60 has two limitations. No more than 150volts Vmp and no more than 3200 watts input.
My panels have a Vmp of 20.4 @25degrees. With a temp coefficient of -.29%. By my calculations, in my 48 volt system, it would have to be a bright sunny day close to absolute zero to get to 150 volts. Should not be a problem here in Tennessee. Are my calculations correct?
My main question is this. If 5000 watts are available, will the controller only process 3200 watts and ignore the rest OR will it try to process all of it and burn up?
In bulk mode the controller is in MPPT mode. In absorb and float it is not in MPPT mode. If it is not in MPPT mode, does that mean it is n PWM mode?
Thanks in advance for your input.
