Question

This QuickApp monitors your Solax managed Solar Panels


The QuickApp has (child) devices for Solarpower/m², Today production, Total production, Total Power to Grid, Total Energy to Grid, Energy from Grid, Total Power/m², Battery Energy, AC Power R, AC Power S, AC Power T, Battery Power, Power DC1, Power DC2, Power DC3 and Power DC4
The rateType interface of child device Today Energy is automatically set to "production"
The readings from the child device Today Energy will be shown in the new energy panel 
The readings from the child device Total Energy is automatically set to the right Wh unit (Wh, kWh, MWh or GWh)

  • It is the Solar Power/m2 that gets calculated. The Total Power/m2 comes from the Solax Cloud and apperently is empty.

    I think the Solax Cloud doesn’t knows your m2 amount. Maybe you can edit it in the Solax Cloud or your installer can.

    Hi all,

    I hope all doing well 

    I have a question about my Solax inverter SK-SU 5000E/48V, do you think it will be intrgrated with my hc3 by using this quickapp?

    thank you for your help

  • You need two items to have it working: 

    tokenId = token ID of your Solax Inverter, obtain your tokenID on the API page of Solaxcloud for free

    inverterSN = Unique identifier (Serial No.) of your Solax inverter


    If you have those, you could check the Solax Cloud with this URL (fill in the tokenID and inverterSN)

     

    Please login or register to see this link.

    tokenId&sn=inverterSN

     

    You should receive an answer like this:

    Hi Eddy, 

     

    Thanks for this quick app. 

    I'm getting an error with the QA, if the Inverter I get an error with the QA when the inverter is off overnight or in Wait Mode. When the inverter is online, everything works perfectly. 

     

    [29.11.2022] [23:44:01] [ERROR] [QUICKAPP494]: QuickApp crashed

    [29.11.2022] [23:44:01] [ERROR] [QUICKAPP494]: main.lua:386: bad argument #2 to 'format' (number expected, got nil)

  • Hi @RudyT

     

    Thanks for reporting. I made some changes. I don't have the Solax Inverter, maybe you could do some testing with the new code? I will send you a PM.

    Hello!

    I need some help understanding whats wrong with this readings, in the dashboard i'm getting this values (wich are correct, since at this moment im producing 1046W and consuming around 600W (not using nothing from the grid)

     

    Please login or register to see this attachment.

     

    But in the APP what i´m getting is that im consuming 1.42. From where its getting this value?

    Sorry, I wasn't clear, I meant the Homecenter 3 firmware. In the latest firmware version you are able to setup in the advanced settings of your devices, if the value should be used in the power measurement: "Use instantaneous power in Energy Panel calculations"

     

    Look at all your devices to mark or unmark this setting to get the right reading in your Yubii app.

    I only have 1 device that could give me higher values of consumption (that only works at nigth), the other ones are residuals.

     

    For example rigth now im getting this different readings

  • Which devices do you use for your energy panel (kWh) and instantaneous power (watt)?

    Only 4 are normally used (1 Switch and 3 ligths) but the switch is the only one used at nigth.

    On the cloud of fibaro, i see that the value of Grid power is normally correct, but on the yubii APP the consumption value its almost always higher.
