Setpoint State of Charge

Scroll Prev Top Next More


The setpoint state of charge is a parameter that can be applied to the cycle charging strategy. If a setpoint state of charge is applied, when the system starts to charge the storage bank, it does not stop until the storage bank reaches the setpoint state of charge.

The setpoint state of charge tends to reduce the amount of time the storage bank spends at a low state of charge. It also tends to reduce the number of generator starts and the number of storage charge-discharge cycles that occur throughout the year.

The setpoint state of charge appears on the Controller page.
