AGS Problem

Postby Kuchta on Mon Jan 14, 2013 4:45 am

Can someone help me with a generator start problem?

I have a LISTER PETTER 7 KVA generator, an OutBack VFX 3024 E inverter and a MATE. AGS is enabled. GEN START CONTROL is on AUTO ON.

The system works most of the time fine. But again and again I get a problem. At the programmed set points the generator starts automatically, after a while the AC IN LED blinks. Then the blinking stops, the generator stops and the MATE goes to GEN START AUTO OFF. I have to put the MATE many times to AUTO ON again to get the charge accepted. The output from the generator is 230 vac at 50.2 Hz.

What is wrong?

Hello Kuchta,

My questions would be

1. Which AGS function(s) are being used to control the genny?
2. Does an AGS Error trigger?
3. When the genny starts, what number is displayed under AGS State in ADV/MATE/AGS/TIMERS?

Also, it might be worth emailing or calling tech support. They are really good at walking through these situations. 360.618.4363 or
