Max System Wattage?
Got a simple question that has been bugging me for a while. I have an Apollo T80 80A charge controller. Currently I have 858Watts of panel, (4) 64W Solrex, (4) 48W Siemens and (2) Sun 205W panels in a 24v configuration. I also have ( 8 ) 6V batteries in a 12V configuration, 880 Ah. Wire permitting and any other small details what is the theoretical max wattage allowed on my system. If I am correct the maximum wattage that I can handle with the single Apollo T80 charge controller is 80A*13.8V= 1104 watts. What I am not sure of if I have the correct nominal voltage, 13.8V or do I take it to the maximum voltage the batteries will ever see, 15V. Any thoughts or ideas? Thanks for your help!
