Solar Charge Controllers - Does the load draw power from the solar or battery?

To anybody knows,

I need your guidance please… If I have a PV system paired with Solar Charge Controller (SCC) and battery bank. What I would like to know is what is the priority of power transmission that will be chosen by SCC when the battery is not full and the loads need power? Will it choose the battery then the load will take power from battery through inverter, or the SCC will directly allocate the power needed by load to inverter?

thank you…

The solar charge controller just regulates the battery charging (DC coupled). The battery inverter/charger will regulate the AC power to and from the grid and to the loads.

When there is a load, the inverter will draw DC power from the battery and solar at the same time (depending on the size of the load). The priority is the load first, then the battery charging second.

Hope this helps,
