0545 – Solar energy (update)

Today, 2 October 2018, from 10.30AM till 07.15PM the solar panels were installed on our roof:

However, as the installation of the panels, the inside electric cable work and all the paperwork had finished after sunset (about 6.30PM), there were no results for this day. Then it took time to install our installation on the servers of SolarNRG in Germany. As from 8 October 2018 we can check the solar power installation on the computer, on the screen of the converter (pictures below) AND on a smartphone:

On the picture: the middle section Vdc represents the voltage that the panels give in a single current power; the left section Vac represents the voltage in alternating current, as we use in Western Europe. The right section represents the number of Watts produced that day (in this case: at 2.30PM 1,109kW). The P_OK indicates the number of panels that are functioning; in our case that should always be 10/10.

This picture is taken just before bedtime: only the alternate current number is used now. There is no input from the panels, so the production in Watt is zero.
