I’ve had the Solar Battery app for a while, but the numbers were still not quite right, so have been spending a bit if time reviewing the feeds and trying to find mistakes. As part of this I renamed two feeds, use_new and use_new_kWh to House_use_new and House_use_new_kWh to reflect this is the power used by the house, and not the battery. After that, the Battery App has stopped working. (At the time I think had the battery app open in another browser tab, on the settings page, just in case this is relevant).
Now when I try and open the battery app, I get an error window pop up:
Message: TypeError: datastore[name].data is undefined
and if I OK it, the main part of the page remains blank, with the spinning circle animation, and scrolling down shows the 4 coloured blocks for solar, grid, Battery and House all with zeros for the numbers:
I went back and renamed the feeds to their old names, but it’s made no difference.
I created a new instance of the battery App, but it has the same errors
I created a new instance of the battery App and did not use use_new or use_new_kWh, but it has the same errors
I restarted emonhub through the admin page, but it’s made no difference.
I restarted REDIS through the admin page, but it’s made no difference.
I rebooted the Pi through the admin page, but it’s made no difference.
(initially after the reboot the inputs and feeds were working, then after a couple of mins they stopped, and I found emonhub process had restarted and now couldn’t talk to the RFM69. Following a suggestion from Trystan in the forum, I used the option to update the firmware, and then the RFM69 was happy again and is working.)
Whilst I accept this is probably user error, I’m a bit stuck on what to do next. In the error pop-up I wondered if “v=17” referred to a faulty feed, but I don’t have a feed 17. Also, this number has changed, initially it read v=15, and I don’t have a feed 15 either.
This is with a Pi3 running low-write 11.0.5
