Adding a second lot of panels
#11
Wow, Thanks for all the comments,
I can’t see another input for panels on my pip5048 So I guess it only has one mppt,
This is my setup



As you can see I also have a pcm60x to charge the batteries,
I wanted to fit another lot of panels in with the first lot of panels on the only input (the yellow line in pic one)
The panels I have are very close to the other panels I’m using on the pip5048
I realise that there won’t be must gain in the winter month but where my panels are it gets shaded around 16:00 but the front of my house still has sun, I want to get ther last 3-4 hours of sun in the West,
What I’m trying to say is, when the West panels are fitted and working (16:00 onwards) my south panels are in the shade, so as long as when I first plug the second (West) lot in, my system doesn’t drop to the lowest it see’s (the west side panels) it should be ok,
I think I might need a few back feed diodes though.
CURRENTLY:-
X3 285w + X3 250w on PCM60X + X12 250w Panels on PIP5048hs,  watchmon4, 2p14s80p 18650 packs
SOON:-
More panels  Big Grin
