Generator charging strategy seems strange


Recommended Posts

Im testing out PVSOL on a standalone pv system with generator. Im using "regulation based on battery status", start 10% stop 50% for the generator ("reg. based on appliance load" unchecked). When I look through the csv-simulation data in excel (see attached screenshot) it shows the generator (column D, "Backup generator energy") starting even though the battery SOC (column C) is at 96%. Why is it doing this?


Edit: "Indicated consumption" is not so high that there's a need to start the generator to keep SOC above 10%. Battery or battery inverter are not limiting factors as far as i can tell.
