So I recently got an emonPI and an emonTX with the idea of monitoring both electric consumption for my house and electric generation from my solar panels.
Quick details on the setup:
I have the emonTX running off batteries attached to the house meter outside in its box transmitting to the emonPI.
The emonPI is connected to the input (DC+?) of the solar panel inverter. I can’t however access the generation output, it feeds via I think a multi-core cable into a cut-off switch and meter and then off somewhere into the house. There is a separate meter for FIT export so I’ve added a pulse sensor here.
First question is how to set this up in emonCMS so I get actual generation, import and export values (especially in things like My Electric).
So far I have:
I’m also unsure because as far as I understood the house also feeds off the solar generation as well as exporting it to the grid.
Second question is really a curiosity, my solar inverter for example says it’s generating ~600W but the value detected on the line is usually <8W, is that normal?
