Hybrid PV / Diesel Generator Option with SMA Fuel Saver Controller


Recommended Posts

Hi Damon,

while we haven't implemented the exact control mechanisms of the SMA Fuel Saver, you could do the following to mimic a hybrid PV system:

  • Go to the battery and battery inverter page, select the first cluster in your system configuration
  • Click the "Battery Management" link
  • Disable the battery as good as possible with these settings:


It will not be possible to avoid their usage completely, but you can limit their participation quite effectively, so that your load will be covered by PV and diesel only:


Hope that helps, kind regards,

Hi Martin,

Thanks, it does answer the battery part of the equation but traditional PV Diesel generator systems only really allow the PV system to provide up to 20% of energy capacity. The SMA fuel saver controller increases this capacity to 60% though.

I suppose you can't cater for the SMA fuel saver controller though?
