I just dont seem to get my head around the relationships between

Energy/ month

  • Used
  • Purchased
  • On Grid 
  • Generation 

 

How do they jive?

Used seems obvious as well as Generation 

But then we have

Power/ day

  • Current
  • Purchased
  • On Grid 
  • Grid

where current seems to be production and grid power seems to be total effect on the grid used being positive and negative being feed back

🤔🤔

Their graphs are screwy... I still want to extract the data locally and do my own graphs locally and more timeously as in every 10 seconds, maybe or so, either way, you want to see on the graph:

"Current Power" - is the power produced by your inverter by way of renewable input sources

"On-grid Power" - is the power purchased from the grid

"Grid Power" - is the power purchased or sold to the grid

"Total Consumption Power" - is the power consumed in your home

Thanks KM

Interesting comparing the two graphs

  • I am at 33deg 41 south  north facing roof at 30 degrees
  • 12 x JA Solar 405W Mono Panels
  • Sunsynk 5.5 Kw

Yesterday was a hot clear sunny day

Max power produced 4.55 kW

you have to take these apps with a grain of salt, i am using Solarman and Solarman Smart, the reading on the SUMMARY can be different from the reading on DEVICE in the same app, and the two apps can be different from each other.

As time goes by, i check the apps less and less, hopefully the new dongle/app will be much better

You are doing very well!

from a PV system of 12*405 = 4,860W, you generated 7 times you solar panel Watts installed for the day. Usually , depending on the season an average of between 4-6 times is achieved!

But as other commentators said "take it with a pinch of salt

Highest i got in Somerset West was 7.2.

Currently averaging 6.4 with the wonderful Somerset West sun this time if the year. August it was down to 5.4. Interested to see what the first full winter will bring. Hopefully not less than 4.

nader aan Upington se kant hier, ek ken 1 of tween mense wat in Kathu bly, een werk by Lohatla... daardie kant is als altyd roes rooi, hulle het blykbaar 100mm reen oor 1 uur ontvang middel van Januarie, hier so 103mm oor 3 dae, 3de tot 5de Januarie, die rivier loop hoog, maar die keer darem nie die keerwalle oorskry nie, tot dusver nie, ek dink dit sal seker nie nou nog gebeur nie, laas keer, 2011, was dit so middel van Januarie

Moet nie te gou praat nie - die Vaaldam begin nou eers oorloop op 101% vol.

Are you guys feeding back to the grid, as the highest I have hit is 21.6 kWh from a 4260 kWp array, six facing NE and six facing NW, as I really don’t have any more geysers, pool pumps and aircons to run🤔🤔
