Solar energy, a complement to fta – satellite tv technology (399) – nigeria electricity jokes

Regardless, I am concerned that your total harvest for the day is Zero KwH – did you take your pics early AM or this afternoon? All those trickling ~7 amps going out of your CC over the course of the day should have added up to something higher than Zero KwH except you have another charging source (e.g. inverter) at a higher voltage point, even then all the amps your CC generated through the day should add up to more than Zero KwH.

Please do what Oga Barezzi said, during full sun and clear skies tomorrow if you are in float and getting small yield just switch on all the equipment you possibly can – if your CC increases the current output then all is probably well. You may also want to put your changeover in neutral e.t.c to avoid grid charging masking your results – your inverter would always isolate your batteries from the equipment loads while charging from the mains – i.e whenever mains (PHCN or Gen) is available, the equipment loads would be fed directly from the mains supply with zero drain on the batteries.

Thank you. The Venus( operating system behind CCGX /color control can be run also on raspberry pi ( that’s what got me started with Victron family)- after which next was BMV then charge controller and then Quattro as my confidence and appetite for the technology got better of me

Infact thos of you with BMV 700/702 can give it a try all you need a raspberry pi and a Ve-direct to USB cable ( few USD) the Pi will connect to VRM(Victron remote portal) Then you can monitor your SOC from anywhere in the world – set alarms etc. as the system is open source there is enough support on google groups even from victron for non standard setups

You took the world right out of my mouth. The above is why am a fan of Victron, when it comes to software integration they are miles ahead of the competition. The cherry on top is the openness of the company to allow community and 3rd party participation. The communication protocol for the VE-direct devices (MPPT charger, Battery monitor and inverters) are open and in plain text for monitoring and Hex for sending commands, The specification for the cable itself is opensource and there is a white paper on how you can DIY the VE connect USB cable should you want to… As started Venus the software at the heart of the amazing CCGX is completely open source and has been ported to the raspberry pi with support for RBp touch screen LCDs!!!

My next project is to have a monitoring system using the open api of Victron. I intend the DIY the V.E Direct cable at least two (I have one O.G V.E Direct cable already) and also install the Venus OS image on a raspberry pi with a 4.3 resistive touch screen from waveshare (Same touch screen drive that comes builtin with Venus).. In the end the goal is to have a functioning CCGX device which is also capable of logging to a custom instance of emoncms as well as connect to the Victron Remote Monitoring service. I have already ordered for the parts and tools needed to accomplish this goal. I will be updating this page.

Is this precious forum turning to a rant group pls?If I may ask ,if this forum is for personal opinion and knowledge sharing, why cant few people drop experiences and leave in peace instead personal attacks which is uncalled for. Why should unnecessary threats be issued on a knowledgeable forum like this. From a feminine view although I stand to be corrected,I saw nothing wrong in what the op you threatened for notin posted on a said brand as he has no particular interest neither was he marketing anything as claimed by you and you do not feed him a bit.I might be new on the forum but i came across Mr Richmond posting pics of an inverter which got burnt then and we all learnt.. You brag as a man about pulling a fellow man with dignity down On same open forum he has been known for long.He only quoted Mr Eartrealm as extrapolated in picture below because they both have used epsolar mppt if you duely follow the forum. You would have been diplomatic in your own comment if you had anything to type or remain mute for sanity sake,I do not know you but be wise pls
