Chickeys solar playhouse. (With Mini DIY powerwall)
#11
Cheers Guys

I've got it setup with grafana now which is monitoring the voltage and power output etc, working really well.  I documented how i did the installation and script so if people are interested i can do a writeup and possibly a youtube video showing the installation.  I've attached a grab showing the output you can get from the epsolar/epever controller into grafana.

Hi I am really interested to see how you did this, I have a very similar system and would love to be able to monitor it like you have. The script would be great to see

Cheers

Great Thank you so much

I now have it up and working Smile
Is there a way to remotely view it online when not on the local network?

Cheers

Been a long time since i updated the thread.  I've now moved my powerwall into the garage as i'd like to start better using the power so have purchased a GTIL2 1000w Sun inverter which shall feed back into the house to offset the power usage a bit.  My resting usage is quite low during the day so on a good sunny day it should be able to cover most of my usage and then into the night as well.  I've also added in a 3D printed 50w wind turbine from thingiverse.  Anything helps really.

   

Everything is being reported to an influxdb database and visualised in grafana including a diyBMS.

Your diyBMS seems to be pretty neat. Where did you have the PCBs made? I like that you can get all the info in grafana.
