 You can confirm if this is affecting your installation be entering the Pylontech Battery menu on your GX device, and then the Parameters Menu. This will report the Charge Current Limit (CCL) and Discharge Current Limit (DCL). This information is also logged in the advanced section of the VRM monitoring portal.  You can confirm if this is affecting your installation be entering the Pylontech Battery menu on your GX device, and then the Parameters Menu.

 When DVCC is enabled, the battery (via the CAN-bms) is responsible for the charge voltage. The Pylontech battery requests a charge voltage of 53.2V. We have however found that in practice this is too high. When DVCC is enabled, the battery (via the CAN-bms) is responsible for the charge voltage.

 It should also be noted that a LiFePO4 cell stores very little additional energy above 3.45V. It should also be noted that a LiFePO4 cell stores very little additional energy above 3.45V.
  
-For this reason we opted to override the BMS and cap the voltage at 52V. This sacrifices almost none of the capacity and greatly improves the stability of the system.+For this reason we opted to override the BMS and cap the voltage at 52.4V.

-Also see the question above. The state of charge of the battery is estimated based on the overall voltage and on how well balanced the internal cells are. Because we cap the battery voltage at 52V, the state of charge will sometimes rise very slowly once it reaches the mid-90s. This is normal and usually resolves over time.+Also see the question above.
