Details of the funding support scheme:
The Solar-Log™ is able to optimize use of self-produced and consumed power. The great advantage lies in the combination of the power NOT sourced externally and the resultant reduction in power costs. This is coupled with additional remuneration for self-produced power. The surplus power can also be directed into the mains supply for remuneration (depending on FIT and other regulations in your country). Solar-Log1000 even offers the capability of using self-produced power at precisely the times at which sufficient electricity is being generated – by engaging up to four consumers (e.g. laundry machine) and switching them off when necessary.
Monitoring of power consumption:
The Solar-Log200/500/1000 is able to record electricity generation as well as power consumption, often referred to as Smart Metering. To enable the Solar-Log™ to do this, it combines the integrated S0 interface with the S0 output of a digital power meter.
Self-produced power consumption in conjunction with Solar-Log1000:
The Solar-Log1000, with installed firmware 2.3.0-30 or later, has the following functions
- Calculation and display of power balance with the help of a Smiley display.
- Optimisation of self-produced power by the switching on of external consumers.
- If the power balance is configured as a “consumption meter” type, the touch screen provides an additional “Power balance” dialogue option.
System of optimizing self-consumption with the Solar-Log1000. Based on the current needs, the generated power is either used for consumption in the home or fed into the distribution grid.
