Inverter detected an endless loop between capacitor online and offline tests
SMA never completed the algorithms and release for the "FULL" - "online" - capacitor test. This function will cause nuisance alarms. Therefore the parameter CapTstEna should be either set to "OFF" or "LIGHT." It is not clear whether or not this fuction was completed for the final version of the inverter in firmware 14.
If this alarm appears, we recommend checking the capacitors are functioning properly. Once verified, the parameter CapTstEna should be changed to "LIGHT" or turned "OFF."
Capacitors can be removed and individually tested phase to phase. Be sure to calculate based on the capacitor rating which is posted on the sticker. Example calculation on a 100µF capacitor:
You should measure 150 µF between each of the phases.
Logic: Cap A + Caps A+B

If the capacitors are verified to be intact without issues, you can consider disabling the parameter CapTstEna by setting it to "OFF" temporarily. This test should ONLY be set to "LIGHT". SoS is not aware of SMA ever completing the functionality of the "FULL" test. This parameter is completely option and operators may set it to their preference. Be sure to check the electrical integrity and perform a visual inspection.
