Marketing 523.80 Kb pdf

Description:

Some loads are not suitable for direct connection to the Load terminals of a Morningstar controller. Heavily inductive or capacitive loads such as pumps, motors, compressors, and inverters should not be wired to the controllers Load terminals. In addition, loads exceeding the Load Current Rating of the controller should not be connected to the controllers Load terminals. Low Voltage Disconnect protection can be maintained when using these loads via the use of a Relay. A diagram and corresponding notes shows how this can be accomplished.

Calculating temperature compensated charging application/pdf English 05.17.2011 1
Read More Download
Tech Note 191.23 Kb pdf

Description:

Here’s a brief explanation on how to calculate the temperature compensated adjustments our controllers make to their charging voltages based on the ambient temperature changes.

The charging voltages listed in the controller operator’s manual are specified at a 25C standard test condition ambient temperature with a -.030V (@ 12V battery) adjustment per degree C change in temperature above or below the 25C reference. The (-) in front of the .030V indicates that voltage adjustment is inverse to the change in temperature. In other words, if the temperature increases above 25C, the controller decreases it’s charging voltage by -.030V per degree C rise above 25C and vice versa. An accurate measurement of the ambient temperature is required for calculating the the controller’s temperature compensated adjustment.

Example:

An ambient temperature of 35C = +10C increase above the 25C base temp = 10 x -.030V compensated adjustment = temperature compensated -.300V decrease in charging voltage.
Therefore, a 14.4V charging voltage specified in the manual @ 25C would be reduced to 14.1V @ 35C or increased to 14.7V @ 15C.

The compensation rate is doubled to .060V/C for 24Vnominal battery systems and quadrupled to .120V/C for 48V nominal battery systems.

Tech Note 1.00 b txt

Description:

Morningstar controllers have been designed to mount vertically. This is the orientation in which the heatsinks are most effective. Mounting the controller horizontally will reduce its passive cooling efficiency, but the risk of overheating will be determined by the ambient temperature and the power level at which the controller will be operating.

All efforts should be made to mount the controller vertically.

Can I network multiple TriStars together? text/plain English 12.08.2009 01
Read More
Tech Note 1.00 b txt

Description:

Multiple TriStar controllers can be networked together over an EIA-485 network via their serial ports using the RSC-1 (RS-232 to EIA-485) converters. Each TriStar on the network will need a unique control address (Modbus ID) that can be programmed using the MSView PC software.  TriStar-MPPT controllers have integrated EIA-485 connections and do not require the use of an RSC-1 adapater.

Morningstar devices connected over an EIA-485 network can also be bridged through a TriStar-MPPT-60 or TriStar MPPT 600V controller for remote monitoring over an Ethernet connection.  Please refer to the Morningstar Communications Document and TriStar/TriStar-MPPT Bridging Redundancy Document for additional information.

The controller performs periodic day/nigh checks (about once every 5 minutes). Depending upon where the controller is in this cycle when the input is removed, it may take anywhere from 0-5min for the controller to turn off its Charging LED and go into the ‘night’ state.

Common Reasons Why Power Transistors Fail text/plain English 09.28.2011 01
Read More
Tech Note 1.00 b txt

Description:

The internal switches of a controller, called MOSFETs or power transistors, switch current on and off to control solar current and load current. Because these components are in the power path, the controller will no longer be able to switch current if they fail.

Power transistors can fail for the following reasons:

  • Over-voltage: lightning or other high voltage transients on the PV power cables.
  • Over-current: too much PV for the controller or a short in the PV line pulls too much currentout of the battery through the controller.
  • Extreme temperatures during charging.
  • A premature failure of the component. The transistors are solid state devices that are manufactured in huge volumes with extremely low failure rates. However, no electrical components are 100% defect free and can pass test and then fail after a short period of time.
  • Old age

DIP Switch Changed Fault (RYG) text/plain English 05.13.2013 01
Read More
Tech Note 1.00 b txt

Description:

If one or more DIP switches are changed while the controller/inverter is powered, the controller/inverter will display a DIP Switch Changed Fault (and the LEDs will begin to sequence). Changing DIP switches while the unit is operating will cause the unit to stop charging until the unit is reset. A reset can be performed by removing power from the device (so that all the LEDs go off) and then re-starting the unit. This procedure prevents the inadvertent changing of operational settings while the controller/inverter is active.

After the controller/inverter has been re-started, it will operate with the new DIP switch settings.

Description:

Do Morningstar Controllers regulate according to SOC (State of Charge) calculations?

No. Morningstar Controllers regulate according to battery voltage setpoints. Because battery health and other factors affect charging over time, using voltage setpoints is a way to naturally track these changes and affords the user a complete understanding of the controllers operation. SOC calculations and algorithms may not be precise under all conditions and may leave the user with a “fuzzy” understanding of the workings of the unit.

Description:

The following is a link to DigiKey, a retailer of flat (ribbon) type DB9 serial cables that can be used with the TriStar RS-232 connection in place of the standard type of serial cables.  The stand-off height of the connectors on standard serial cables obstructs the re-installation of the TriStar face plate while connected.  The low-profile type of DB9 connectors used on these flat serial cables allows the TriStar face plate to be reinstalled without being obstructed by the RS-232 connection.  This is useful in applications that require a continuous RS-232 connection to the TriStar for remote monitoring/communications purposes.

5) Custom settings: setpoints too low (in load control mode, HVD only enabled in custom)
6) Other charging sources in the system. Other charging sources in the system may be charging the battery above the controller’s regulation set-point, causing the high voltage indication. The indication will clear when battery voltage has returned to normal.

The Green Flashing LED may appear on the Morningstar controller if the battery voltage is at or above the controller’s Absorption charging voltage setting. Although the controller is not delivering power to the batteries (because there is no input source present), the indication still appears. This is not an indication of controller malfunction.
