  1. With my inverter set to PYL and if I change the charge voltages, the king automatically changes back to 53.2v. Im assuming it gets this number from the batteries.I also noticed the charge current decreases on the settings page as the battery nears full. Im running 71.86 and wondering if you're able to change the charge voltage and it stays at the new set voltage that this could be a change in firmware 71.90 ? or possibly different firmware in the batteries? Now i thinking out loud here. Could this be part of the problem is that for whatever reason maybe the batteries are not communicating the charge voltage correctly to the inverter?
  2. I use ICC to control my King. My Pylons are also connected to ICC so im able to use the Pylon SOC to control what the King does. Unfortunately Im not sure how to control "Back to grid" or vise vera with out it.
  3. Check and see if it does it in SbU. Ive noticed in SUB that the solar supply seems to "hunt" a bit when the batteries are full and the load is low. This could be what you are seeing. I don't use SUB very often so can't really offer more at the moment. Do you have ICC monitoring the King ?
  4. @DeeJay what mode is the Inverter in when this cycling happens?
  5. So far mine has been behaving itself since changing the fuse holder.
  6. So far so good hopefully it was just a dodgy fuse holder. They definitely 3S2P 60 cells panels with a combined open voltage of about 103v. When I get back to SA double check everything.
  7. Well I say a few weeks but let’s see what happens with coronavirus.
  8. Thank guys for the support and response. I managed to get someone to change the fuse and the fuse holder last night. So lets see how it goes over the next few weeks. I'll check temperatures when i get back home.
  9. Unfortunately I’m nowhere near my system at the moment and won’t be for the next 3 weeks. It’s a standard 32amp dc fuse holder and a 10mm x 38mm 30amp dc solar fuse being used. The cable run is around 10m and I’ve used 6m2 solar cable.
  10. I’m having an issue with one of my strings. I keeps blowing a fuse once every 3 weeks or so. It’s done this 3 times I have 6X 290w panels 3S2P on that line. and therefore should only be getting a max of 20amps. However I’m blowing a 30amp fuse. Now I have another string of 6 panels facing the same way wired exactly the same and its fuse never blows. Today when the fuse blew my solar was putting out 88v and 2880w from 15 panels which should equate to around 13amps on that string. In the past when I’ve replaced the fuse I’ve tested the current draw on each of my strings and all the numbers and where what they supposed to be. Any ideas?
  11. This afternoon I ran my king in SUB and I also had oscillations in my PV current when my batteries where fully charged. This only seems to happen when the PV current is greater than the load current. As soon as the PV current drops below the load current it all smoothed out. Its overcast and a bit rainy here today so my solar production is not great nor stable. However it did notice earlier in the day that when the load was above 1000w there was no oscillation. But I could only observe this for short time. Hopefully tomorrow’s weather will be better and I’ll be able to test.
  12. Yes from the download section here on the forum.
  13. 1) what your Firmware version is? = 71.86 2) Mine are as follows: 01 SUB 02 10 05 USE 06 LtE 07 LtE 09 50 10 AUT 11 10 12 47 13 50 16 SLb UdC 18 bOF 19 tEP 20 LOF 22 AOF 23 bYE 25 Fd5 26 53.2 27 53.2 28 SIG 29 47 30 AUt 33 Ed5 34 58.4 35 60 36 120 37 30d 39 Ad5
  14. Ill be able to check in the tomorrow morning.
