MPPT: Ultra Fast Maximum Power Point Tracking

By constantly monitoring the voltage and current output of your solar (PV) panels, MPPT technology ensures that every drop of available power is rinsed out of your panels, and harvested for storage. The advantage of this is most noticeable when the sky is partially clouded, and light intensity is constantly changing.


Maximum Power Point Tracking

Upper curve:

Output current (I) of a solar panel as function of output voltage (V).
The Maximum Power Point (MPP) is the point Pmax along the curve where the product I x V reaches its peak.

Lower curve:

Output power P = I x V as function of output voltage.
When using a PWM (not MPPT) controller the output voltage of the solar panel will be nearly equal to the voltage of the battery, and will be lower than Vmp.

Remote Monitoring and Control

Remotely control and monitor the extensive features of your SmartSolar MPPT charger with built-in Bluetooth by pairing it with your smartphone or other device via VictronConnect. If your installation is connected to the internet with a GX device, the Victron Remote Management Portal (VRMprovides access to the full power of your MPPT, anytime, anywhere; both VictronConnect and VRM are free to useFor remote installations - even when there is no internet connection nearby - you may be able to monitor your MPPT by connecting the  GlobalLink 520.

Load output (Certain models only 75/10, 75/15, 100/15 and 100/20 Only)

The intelligent Load output function prevents damage caused by running batteries 'flat'. You can configure the voltage at which SmartSolar disconnects a load - thereby preventing excessive drain on your batteries. And here's the clever bit: SmartSolar will attempt a 100% recharge every day. If it can't - during periods of poor weather - it raises the disconnect voltage, daily, until it achieves success. We call this feature BatteryLife because it maintains the health, and extends the life of your battery.


BlueSolar and SmartSolar MPPT Charge Controllers Overview

Feature highlights common to all models

• Ultra-fast Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT).
• Advanced Maximum Power Point Detection in case of partial shading conditions.
• Outstanding conversion efficiency.
• Natural convection cooling.
• Automatic battery voltage recognition.
• Flexible charge algorithm.
• Over temperature protection and power derating when temperature is high.

Sizing options:

• Suitable for a variety of battery voltages. Most models connect to 12, 24, and 48V batteries, some only
connect to 12 and 24V batteries, or only to 48V batteries.
• Charge currents rating from 10A all the way up to 100A.
• Maximum PV array Voc voltages ranging from 75V up to 250V.
• Multiple chargers can be used in parallel, for large systems we recommend to use the models with a
VE.Can communication port.

PV terminal options:

• TR - one positive and one negative screw terminal.
• MC4 - 3 pairs of paralleled MC4 connectors.

Bluetooth options:

• SmartSolar models have Bluetooth.
• BlueSolar models do not have Bluetooth. They can be retrofitted to have Bluetooth by connecting the
VE.Direct Bluetooth Smart dongle. Advantage: the product is not Bluetooth accessible when the
dongle is not connected. Note that on the SmartSolar models, Bluetooth can be disabled.

Display options:

• VictronConnect Application. Connects via Bluetooth or via the VE.Direct - USB interface
• MPPT Control. Connects to all models via a VE.Direct cable
• SmartSolar Control Display. Plugs directly into the housing of the larger models
• GX device
• VRM website (GX monitoring device needed)

Communication ports:

• VE.Direct - all models
• VE.Direct and VE.Can - limited models. VE.Can is especially suitable for systems with multiple solar
chargers. All units are simply “daisy chained” to each other with a single RJ45 cable between each unit
and also between the las unit in the chain and the a GX monitoring device.

Temperature sensor options:

• Internally (all models).
• Externally via the Smart Battery Sense (only SmartSolar models).

Load output options:

• Physical output - On the 10, 15 and 20A models.
• Virtual output - via VE.Direct TX digital output cable and the BatteryProtect or a solid-state relay.

Remotely enabling and disabling the charger:

• All larger units feature the Victron standard remote on/off terminals. All models that don’t feature an
onboard Remote on/off terminal can be remotely controlled by using the VE.Direct non inverting
remote on/off cable – ASS030550310. Note that this prohibits using the VE.Direct port for anything

Firmware update options:

• Local updates via the VictronConnect Application (via Bluetooth or USB-VE.Direct interface)
• Remote updates via VRM website and a GX device

Optional accessories:

• VictronConnect Application (free download)
• Wire boxes, to cover and protect the terminals. See table on page 2 for wire box types
• Control and display panels: MPPT control or SmartSolar control)
• GX monitoring device (CCGX, Venus GX, Octo GX or Cerbo GX)
• Data cables: VE.Direct cable, RJ45 Cable (VE.Can models only), USB-VE.Direct interface
• External control cables: TX cable, non-inverting cable
• Bluetooth dongle (for non-smart models)

SmartSolar Charge Controllers with screw- or MC4 PV connection MPPT 150/60 up to MPPT 150/70-Tr

Optional SmartSolar Control Display

By adding the SmartSolar Control Display you will be able to check the status of your Charger and battery-storage at a glance. Simply plug it into the face of your MPPT charger to provide you with real-time monitoring and set-up capabilities.


Bluetooth Smart built-in

The wireless solution to set-up, monitor, update and synchronise SmartSolar Charge Controllers.


For a wired data connection to a Color Control GX, other GX products, PC or other devices

Ultra-fast Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT)

Especially in case of a clouded sky, when light intensity is changing continuously, an ultra-fast MPPT controller will improve energy harvest by up to 30% compared to PWM charge controllers and by up to 10% compared to slower MPPT controllers.

Advanced Maximum Power Point Detection in case of partial shading conditions

If partial shading occurs, two or more maximum power points may be present on the power-voltage curve.
Conventional MPPTs tend to lock to a local MPP, which may not be the optimum MPP.
The innovative BlueSolar algorithm will always maximize energy harvest by locking to the optimum MPP.

Outstanding conversion efficiency

No cooling fan. Maximum efficiency exceeds 98%.
The full output current up to 40°C (104°F).

Flexible charge algorithm

Fully programmable charge algorithm (see the software page on our website), and eight pre-programmed algorithms,
selectable with a rotary switch (see manual for details).

Extensive electronic protection

Over-temperature protection and power derating when temperature is high.
PV short circuit and PV reverse polarity protection.
PV reverse current protection.

Internal temperature sensor

Compensates absorption and float charge voltage for temperature.

Optional external battery voltage and temperature sensing via Bluetooth

A Smart Battery Sense, a BMV-712 Smart Battery Monitor or a SmartShunt can be used to communicate battery voltage and temperature (and current, in case of a BMV 712 or a SmartShunt) to one or more SmartSolar Charge Controllers.

Synchronized parallel charging with Bluetooth

Up to 10 units can be synchronized with Bluetooth.

Fully discharged battery recovery function

Will initiate charging even if the battery has been discharged to zero volts.
Will reconnect to a fully discharged Li-ion battery with integrated disconnect function.


For a wired data connection to a Color Control GX, other GX products, PC or other devices

Remote on-off

To connect for example to a VE.BUS BMS.

Programmable relay

Can be programmed to trip on an alarm, or other events.

Optional: SmartSolar pluggable LCD display

Simply remove the rubber seal that protects the plug on the front of the controller, and plug-in the display.
