ICC Inverter and MPPT charger

Recommended Posts

My installation is described in the picture attached.
I've an aXpert compatible inverter receiving power alternatively from grid and 9 pv 250w. It is also connected to a battery unit (24v UOPZS 1000A)

My ICC/raspberry monitorizes the inverter and the Victron Battery Monitor connected to the battery unit. 

As reinforcement, I've 6 pv 250 cells connected to a MPPT 60A which is also connected to the battery unit (in paralell). This device has his own rs232 port and can be monitored using MPPTTracker software, but it is an independent measure.

The MPPT 60A is not connected to the ICC and all the energy that it produces is not being registered by this software.  

My question:
Is it possible to connect BOTH systems, the inverter and the MPPT60A, to the ICC like a second inverter?

hoi,

 

dont think thats possible...

it is, but than they need to talk to one an other (parallel) and this will not work ,because they are not identical

 

OR a second ICC running on the / a PI AND the pcm60 needs to be programmed (protocol ????) into ICC

but you can not 2 inverters with on ICC program...

Thank you very much. I did figure this. But the idea was not to control both systems as if they were two parallel inverters but incorporate the feeds that they both produce in the dashboard and, eventually, calculate the total amount of pv watts produced, for example.
I think that it is possible since the raspberry pi has some USB independent connexions and at present, it can combine a Victron Battery Monitor and an inverter to produce a single dashboard.

true, but dont think we can run 2xICC on one PI. .. you can try (registration and DB error will happen i think)

and the pcm is not in the ICC (protocol ?)
