Hi Bill 

We blew a fuse and the electrian when checking it out asked ad there would be shore power and genny running through it.

He asked and I couldn't answer the question. We have the 24/2000.

Thanks sgsin

Chris,

No, the Victron MPPT 75/50 does not have an Earth terminal... And I would not think that it should.

Why do you ask?

Hi Bill,

Does your Victron Energy MPPT have a ground wire connection for the AC side?

Thanks

Alex,

With some modern MPPT controllers series is more efficient. I only had enough room at the top of the EMEK Marine arch for three of the 135 watt panels. They are wired in series producing a maximum of 75 volts to the controller, and my controller takes a maximum of 75 volts.

While at anchor, I run the generator to make water, to heat water, to wash clothes, and to top off the batteries.

Thank yo so much Bill,

So 3 x 135 Watt sola panel is enough !
That sounds great. I thought I would need twice the amount.
So you have regular “flooded” Delco Freedom batteries and they charge fully, this si great.

I thought of the Kyocera as well.
Are they mounted on series or parallel?

A neighbor on a 54 has 4 x 200 Watt mounted in series and obtain 96 Volt which is then convert in 24 volt…
he (try to) explain the lost of energy proportional to the square of the amp, etc. in short gaining 35% by mounting in series, but I have absolutely no clue on that…
So just trying to understand and see working solutions…

Why do you run your genset? To make water, etc. or also to help charging the bateries?

As always thanks for the help!
Sincerely, Alexandre

Alex,
We have 405 watts of solar which will keep the
batteries at 100% during daylight while running freezer,
fridge, fans and a computer or two.  We have a Victron Blue
MPPT controller which has been very good at regulating the
charge during daylight hours. We have 12 standard 110amp
house batteries...freedom model.
I would go with either German or Japanese solar
panels and keep clear of Chinese. There are probably good
panels from China, but I know that there are many poor
quality panels. I think that you get what you pay for. I
chose Kyocera panels from Japan...3 @ 135 watts each with a
MPPT controller up to 75 volts and up to 50 amps. I have the
3 panels wired in a series.
I now run the generator at anchor for about 1
to 1.5 hours every second day.

Good morning,



Currently I have 8 of the traditional deep cycle flooded
batteries, which is ok, since I spend a large amount of time
in Marinas because of my work.



Therefore, I might start to spend more time at anchor.

From sailing experience I know the genset doesn’t fully
charge the batteries.

So will consider solar panels.

Does anyone have input in this solution?

Also for those using solar panels, did you keep the same
flooded batteries or did you change them with AGM, or else?




Thanks in advance, sincerely, Alexandre
