The article describes the problem of limiting the production power of a solar power plant. The following describes an example of setting up a Reduxi controller and finding a problem that limits the production power of your solar power.
- Reduxi Controller is connected to the inverter of your solar power plant.
- To review your data, you use Reduxi Cloud, where you choose to display data on a graph at your location by clicking on the house in the middle of the display of your overview panel.
- We have set up a strategy in Reduxi Configurator with an export limit of Solar Power Plant of 4.8 kW.
- Strategies can also be accessed via the overview panel in Reduxi Cloud by clicking on the lightning at the bottom of the page:
- Select strategy.
- The limit is set at 4.8 kW on the Reduxi Configurator, which means that the production of the solar power plant will be limited to 4,8 kW if the facility's consumption is equal to 0 kW. If the facility's consumption is 2,2 kW, the solar power plant will be limited to 7 kW.
- The graph below shows that the solar power plant reaches only 4.5 kW, and the solar chart is straight at the top, even though the solar power plant does not have such a production profile. We can immediately see that someone is limiting it at 4.5 kW of production power.
- As we have written in point 7, if Reduxi controller would regulate solar power plants, the production of a solar power plant would be followed (at least in some part) by the current consumption in your facility, which we see is not the case.
- This limit is set in the solar power plant inverter, which must be removed so the Reduxi Controller can adequately regulate the solar power plant.
