Solar Controller Voltage Ouput
I have an Outback Flex 60 MPPT solar controller for my 290W 30V panel. Lately I've noticed that during morning/evening or shady conditions the controller says it is putting out 11.9V, which makes sense. But at the same time it says it is putting out a couple of amps and the battery monitor also says this. Yet at the time the battery bank voltage is 12.3V+. So I don't understand how the controller could be putting out anything if the output voltage is less than the battery voltage.
I've have this setup for a couple of years and don't remember seeing this before so I worry something is going bad. I also this year seem to have a lot of trouble getting the controller voltage adjusted to what the batteries voltage really is.
Don't blow air up my rear, be useful and blow it at the sails!
