Solar Clipping Prediction


I wondered if there is a way to predict solar clipping - for example I have 10kwp of panels (east/west) and a 5kW inverter, with DC coupled battery. On sunny days there is clipping.

I want to use the or solcast automation to estimate how much clipped power there will be the following day (generation over 5kW) and then I will set the SOC of the battery to leave ‘room’ for the excess production that would have been clipped, while exporting the rest to grid/covering the house demands.

If needed I will charge the battery overnight on a cheap tariff, and my export is a fixed rate.

An addition to this would be to check the forecast and force discharge the battery if its looking like a ‘good’ solar day.
