Low battery condition simulation

Post by iamfound74 »

Hello all...

How do i make a low battery condition simulation to test the AGS function on my Mate3s?

I'm having issues with the genset not turning on automatically.

I install and maintain grid-tied and off-grid systems in my area and consult on solar system design/operation.

If you are just testing the Mate3s starting the gen, you can use the exercise function and pick the time you want to test. If you need to test the SOC start just set below the current value. If you need to test V start, set the 2-minute value below your current battery voltage.
A couple of questions:
1) What relay are you using to start the gen?
2) What gen do you have, and does it have a two-wire start?
