Re: PIP-5048MK inverter

How about another 4 panel mounted on the other roof with the same east/west orientation and connect them up 3S2P for the east facing panels and 3S2P for the west facing panels, all wired back to the controller so it receives a total of 3S4P but only a part of the day at full output from all 12 pane...

Re: PIP-5048MK inverter

i can surely see that i was a little too greedy thinking i could go for a 4s2p setup for this inverter, and that might explain why i was kind of stable in my 3s2p setup with no dips, and now when i put on 2 more panels i got the dips. Actually it is running perfectly fine on a complete sunny day, bu...

Re: PIP-5048MK inverter

Nope, it did not do any difference.. lots of dips now. :-/ ok, that was my own fault, i had put on more pv panels and now i exceeded the specs on the mk (150VoC) and above 115 MPPT, then i saw a lot of dips, now i am back to 3x40VoC and apprx 92-ish MPPT, now everything is back to normal, Now i hav...

Re: PIP-5048MK inverter

Today i had several dips on my MK, and a few the last three days, prior to that i have not seen any dips in a lot of weeks, what i did change before the dips, was the charging voltage in float and bulk. now i have changed the settings again the other way, and i will see what will happen. the settin...

I've just noticed that @suorama is running SCC firmware version 04.10, and doesn't seem to suffer the dips or freezes. Are all you others with these problems running SCC version 04.12 by any chance?
My version - which i have recorded two major freeze on, is running 01.10 on U4.

Got a mail from mpp solar.. 2018 Mk models is with older hw version, we should not expect firmware update for bms for this one, from 2019 is new hardware, and should be delivered with newest firmware, no saying about a release of a new firmware for either, but apparently two different hardware versi...

Re: PIP-5048MK inverter

Yes it did start the day after, i did not restart the unit. no freezes since,
on my graph it seems the PV goes to 0, but i think it is because of heavy clouds coming in. the unit still produces somewhat little power.

i hopw the firmware will soon get released. i will update too.

Re: PIP-5048MK inverter

@affer and @coulomb how do I get hold of Firmware 71.61 and how do I upload it to the inverter? Mustek is currently in contact with the manufacturer to try and find a solution to the freeze and dip issue but it might be solved as part of the 71.61 firmware update. i never did an update on a mpp yet...

Re: PIP-5048MK inverter

So no major dips in pv, and no freezes. I would say you had one dip at 14:30 on the first graph. Total charge current dipped to 10 A (utility charging), but SCC charge current dipped to zero. Edit: BTW: nice production till 9pm (PV voltage present till after 10pm)! (Denmark is approaching summer no...
