Generator kW mirroring Inverter kW after update to 3-15-5

Postby suthers on Thu Sep 28, 2017 9:54 am

After updating the Mate3 to 3-15-5, the Generator kW reading on the home screen shows the same value as the Inverter kW output.

System is of off-grid, and generator is off.

Other screens, such as generator screen, correctly show generator kW as zero. It seems to be the main screen only that is in error.

How do I fix this?

Some more specific details:

System: VFXR3048E/FlexMax80/Mate3
Firmware Versions: 1.6.15 / 2.0.0 / 3.15.5
Config: Off-Grid, AGS disabled, generator manually started when required.

Issue only with the Mate3 home screen, kW figure for Gen. (The Gen meter bar operates correctly.)

Situation: Gen off, AC Input state = drop, VFXR inverting from Bat to loads.
Issue: The Gen kW figure on the home screen incorrectly shows the kW being output from the inverter to the loads. Basically, of the three kW figures on the left of the screen, the bottom 2 are always the same, with the Gen figure copying the Inverter figure. The Gen meter bar operates correctly, showing empty/nothing.

Situation: Gen on, AC Input state = use, VFXR charging batteries.
Gen meter correctly shows Gen input kW. Gen Input and Inv 0utput kW figures are the same, but then they should be in this scenario.
