Can I Load Shave in an AC Coupled System?

Issue
Load Shaving while AC Coupling

Environment
Conext XW+/SW AC Coupled

Product Family
Conext XW+/SW

Cause
Process of Load Shave is defeated when AC Coupling.

Resolution
This is not able to be accomplished because of how Load Shave functionally works. The inverter will stop Load Shaving when the batteries reach Recharge V + 0.5 V. The batteries will then sit idly, and there is no way to tell the inverter to charge the batteries. Therefore, the AC Coupled solar power is not distributed to the batteries and the batteries do not get charged.
