Finally got a chance to attack this tonight, started with new card as it happens to get onto May2016 image and cure some other woes, followed the guide to re-setup my feeds from inputs: https://guide.openenergymonitor.org/applications/solar-pv/
Could be cause its a bit late and my brain is tired, but the guide says:
- Calculated site-consumption:
Use + input input processor to add CT1 grid import/export to solar generation in order to calculate site-consumption
Select log to feed and create a feed called use with the feed engine set to PHPFina and feed interval=10s
Select power to kwh, create a feed called use_kwh with feed engine PHPFina and feed interval=10s
Where should I use the +input, I am guessing this comes under CT2 so I add the (allow positive) CT1 reading to get the house consumption and log to use and use_kwh feed? (what if some of the solar is exporting… that’s not use?)
The screenshot for mysolarpv app is confusing, as it calls the cumulative export “export_kwh” which is not a feed you setup in the guide?
Am I right that somewhere I need to setup an allow negative on CT1 and log to feed for export? How can I combine that with the existing allow positive for the import and import_kwh?
Would “use” not be plower1pluspower2, and can I add an “allow negative” on CT1 after the allow positive and subsequent processing before log to export and export_kwh?
