Optimise inverter / solar


Recommended Posts

Hi All 

Has anyone looked at optimising their inverter settings based on loadshedding and forecast weather? 

I've been working on optimising solar usage by automatically changing my inverter settings (charge from grid, use grid, use battery etc) in order to minimise Eskom usage. 

I'm currently integrating the loadshedding schedule, forecast weather / solar generation, estimate house load, battery size to determine the best settings in order to minimise Eskom usage while not running out of battery / solar power. 

My inverter is connected via an Esp8266 to Home Assistant, which allows me to get info and control settings on the inverter. 

Has anyone looked at anything similar? 

I'm still busy testing it  - but so far seems quite positive. 

Would be interested to hear from anyone else that's looked at this?
