Midnite Classic question
OK, my tiny 'lil 900w (3 panel), 4x golf cart battery system has been running for a few months and I have a good feel for how much it generates and how much I can take from it. My next plan is to jump into a larger system, probably 9 panels (close to 2700w) and a Midnite Classic 150. If the system's PV puts out (on a sunny day at high noon) around 84A (24v) and the Classic can handle 96A, I'm fine. But if I install a 4th string of 3 more PV panels to yield something like 3600w, the max output will be near 111A (24v) and the Classic will be over its 96A (rated max output)... but only by 15A, and it should rarely see this condition. My question is, will the excess amps simply be lost? or will the Classic shut down until the amperage from the PV panels drops below its 96A capacity? I get the above figures from my current system, which uses a Midnight Kid, and the 3 panels I have maxes out at 1pm at 27A and change, I have never seen 28A to the batteries.
