Re: PIP-5048MK inverter

Re: PIP-5048MK inverter

Following this post , I've been prompted to check if the QED, QEM, QEY, QET etc commands are present in the later removable display firmwares. These commands query the PV and load energy for the present day, month, year, and grand total. The QE x commands seem to report PV generated energy; the QL ...

:-D what rools do you use i node red? Glad Nuno helped :) - you've advanced much further than me, I haven't experimented with MQTT/Node Red.... My setup is complicated somewhat by having a Wind Turbine (48vDC 2KW) also charging the battey - so the PIP voltage/current read-out is not very accurate. ...

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...
