I installed and setup HA about a week ago, so very new to this.
I’m presuming the energy dashboard should show daily figures, the grid figures are correct, but solar generation and the home consumption figures are wrong.
I’ve noticed I have solar production in the early hours of the morning, also energy consumption.
These are the settings.
Electricity import and export come from a Glow CAD IHD via utility meter helpers IIRC.
Victron (Total Yield Today) comes from my Victron PV system, this resets at midnight, although I do need to confirm this (it seems it doesn’t - see note below). The value is obtained via MQTT which connects to Node Red on my Victron system.
- name: "Victron (Total yield today)" unique_id: "victron_total_yield_today" state_topic: "TotalGenerationToday" device_class: "energy" unit_of_measurement: "kWh" state_class: "total_increasing" icon: "mdi:solar-power"
I also have a battery (which is probably confusing things), but I can’t figure out what information to add, the More information on how to get started. is not helpful in my case, it doesn’t really tell me anything remotely useful. Clicking “ADD BATTERY SYSTEM” states it wants kWh in and out of the battery. I’ve not come across a kWh in and out of the battery figure, so can’t at the moment add this. Now I know the battery voltage, and I know the current flowing, also consumed ah so presumably somehow I can calculate the kWh, but no idea how to go about this.
Any thoughts please?
Edit: Just checked the Victron system, and the solar yield from the MPPT charge controllers does not reset at midnight, so not sure when it does reset - so need to figure that one out.
