Solis Energy Storage Inverter with BYD B-Box HV Commissioning

Start with the inverter AC and DC both off


  1. Ensure that the battery fuses in the inverter are not pushed in. Then flip the switch on the BYD battery up into the ON position
  2. You will now need to connect to the BYD battery to commission it. There are two methods for accomplishing this:
    1. WiFi: Turn the main switch of the Battery-Box on to power on the battery system. 2. Connect the computer to the Battery-Box systems WIFI. Search in the computer for new WIFI networks. The name of the WIFI will be BYD and the last 11 numbers of the serial number. (Example: Products serial number: "BYD100171708-00000" will have the WIFI name: "BYD171708-00000") WIFIs password is "123456789". 3. Open a recommended browser and call the IP address of the Battery-Box where you are usually put in the URL of a web page. The Battery-Box IP address is "192.168.5.1" 4. You will be asked for account number and the login password. Please fill in "installer" and as a password "byd@12345" 
    2. Direct connection with an ethernet cable: The LAN cable has to be connected directly to your computer. 2. Turn on the main switch of the Battery-Box system. 3. Open a recommended browser and call the IP address of the Battery-Box where you are usually put in the URL of a web page. The Battery-Box IP address is "192.168.6.1" 4. You will be asked for account number and the login password. Please fill in "installer" and as a password "byd@12345" 
  3. Click the tab called "Installation" on the left side of the screen then set the system's user information: installation date/time, quantity of battery modules in the stack, inverter type (Please use “BYD-CAN” for Solis), and geographic location. Then click "Finish", the parameters will be automatically set but please wait one minute for the configuration to finish. 
  4. The battery will restart on its own, this is completely normal. Also, the battery performs a self-calibration cycle about once every 30 days. 

Solis Hybrid Battery Commissioning Steps:

  1. Turn on the AC breaker for the inverter and also the DC switch on the left side of the inverter wire box. Then wait for the screen to come on.
  2. Press the ENTER button and then go to "Advanced Settings" in the inverter menus
    1. Enter the password 0010 (DOWN, DOWN, UP, ENTER)
  3. Press ENTER when on "Select Standard" and choose the most appropriate grid standard
    1. Most systems in the US will use UL-240 or UL-240A (for arc-fault protection)
    2. The Rule 21 grid standard is R21-P3-240 and with arc-fault is R21-P3-240A
  1. Go to "Battery Control"  in Advanced Settings and then to "Battery Select". Using the UP/Down buttons scroll until B-Box HV is highlighted
  2. Press Enter three times and then hit ESC - When "Save & Send" is highlighted press ENTER
  3. Go to "Battery Wakeup" in Advanced Settings and then press ENTER – the inverter screen should now display SOC and the current charge/discharge amount 
  4. Go to Export Power Set in Advanced Settings
    1. Press Enter on Backflow Power
    2. For zero-net-export (exporting no power to the grid) make sure this value is +00000W
    3. For maximum export power set this value to the inverter nameplate rating
      1. Example: RHI-1P7.6K-HVES >>>> +07600W
  5. Go to Storage Energy Set, then Meter Select, and choose 1P Meter if the Acrel is installed
    1. If the Acrel is not installed because it cannot be or has not been done yet - select No Meter
  6. Change the Date and Time in the Settings menu
  7. Choose your energy storage operating mode (See the article "Energy Storage Inverter Operating Modes")
  8. Set up your monitoring device (See the article "Solis Monitoring Device Commissioning")
  9. Get set up on the SolisCloud monitoring platform (See the article "Solis Cloud Commissioning")
  10. Verify on the main screen that PV production, battery charge/discharge, backup, and grid import/export are all accurate values and that the site is reporting on the monitoring platform
  11. You're done!
