Solare Datensysteme GmbH (SDS), together with VARTA Storage GmbH , developed a new solution to visualize storage systems. The Solar-Log™ system can now visual important data and values from battery storage systems.
Battery systems are the most effective solution for the flexible use of PV electricity. A major benefit: The electricity can be stored and then used later regardless of the time of day or amount of sun. By connecting the Engion storage system from VARTA Storage GmbH to the Solar-Log™ energy management system, all of the important data and values from the storage medium are visualized. All of the measured values such as the current charge level and charging capacity are displayed directly via the Solar-Log™ webinterface. As a helpful analysis option, the current charge is displayed as well as the charge history for the last seven days.
Diagnostic Functions to increase the Degree of Self-Sufficiency
The Solar-Log™ provides the user additional information from the storage medium to assist in using the battery solution more effectively. Important components here are the electricity savings from using the battery itself. The user sees energy usage from the battery, and the savings of using that instead of purchasing electricity from the grid.
Combining Classic Monitoring and Energy Management
Combining the Solar-Log™ system with the Engion storage system from VARTA Storage GmbH not only provides visualization of the energy flows, but also offers professional monitoring for PV plants. To implement monitoring and visualization of the storage medium, the battery storage series (Engion family, Engion home and Engion element) have an interface to connect directly to the Solar-Log™ energy management system, allowing both systems to directly communicate with each other.
