(UPDATE JAN 30,2023) Better pictures of the dump load set up for AC scr's.
I take the AC voltage right from the wires before the rectifier.
6 panels in series is 135 volts which is under max.
Current will be 11.68. With the 2 strings added together.
Operating voltage and current will...
All kinds of connectors on Amazon.
The voltage will be fine.
The open volts are the one to go with.

Thanks Juiceman for the info.
But when I had a small battery bank.
To keep from overcharging.
Lithium battery setup only charges to set voltage...
If you have a voltage meter.
Check that the P20L controller is showing the same voltage.
I would change reconnect to 12.4 and flood to 13....
Still at 90 watts for (3) 100 Watt panels.
I even tried another MPPT Controller.
So in spring I will pull them all again.
And put up the two from...
Just changed the panel.
Power output soon.
New panel has a few bubbles and a trace almost sticking above the clear coating.[ATTACH] [ATTACH]
Trouble with the flex panels.
This just happened this week.
(3) 100 watt panels in series with MPPT Charge Controller.
Max output 58 Watts.

I just installed some more of these panels.
There was a note with them.
Do NOT connect these panels in Full Sun.
Or risk damage to the panels.
That is normal.
So the controller has voltage and will be ready for solar input.
Connect solar first and risk damaging the controller.
Wind KWH since I installed the Classic.
It is 114 KWH for this year.
