Victron SmartSolar 100 VOC, 30 Amp MPPT solar panel charge controller for 12V and 24V battery systems (including Lithium) with Bluetooth.
Suits Battery: 12/24V
MPPT 100/30 & 100/50
MPPT controllers operate solar panels at their Maximum Power Point improving efficiency up to 30% by adjusting input voltage to harvest the maximum power from the solar panels. It then manages this power to supply the varying voltage requirement of the battery plus load.
The MPPT senses when to adjust the output that it is being sent to the battery and will shut down for a few microseconds, calculate and make relevant adjustments. The principle of MPPT is to extract the maximum possible power from a solar panel by setting the most efficient combination of voltage and current - maximum power point.
The Victron MPPT SmartSolar support Advanced Maximum Power Point Detection. Unlike the conventional MPPTs which tend to lock to a local MPP when shady conditions occur, [which may not be the optimum MPP], Advance Maximum Power Point Detection will harvest maximin energy by locking to the optimum MPP.
Internal temperature sensor provides additional electronic protection
- Over-temperature protection and power derating when temperature is high.
- PV short circuit and PV reverse polarity protection.
- PV reverse current protection.
- With no cooling fan the maximum efficiency exceeds 98%.
- Flexible charge algorithm provides functionality for fully programmable charge algorithm, and eight preprogrammed algorithms, selectable with a rotary switch
Built-in Bluetooth along with the VictronConnect App provides easy access to the extensive range of functions available on your solar charge controller such as:
Victron MPPT model names explained
MPPT 100/30, the first number is the maximum PV open circuit voltage. The second number, 30, is the maximum charge current. Use the Victron MPPT Excel sheet or Online MPPT Calculator for PV sizing calculations.
