I currently have a 3-fase IAMMETER reading my power usage and production in the house. This is the current setup:
In the future I would like to add battery storage to the system. The future situation would resemble this:
If I add the battery system, will IAMMETER be smart enough to realize that if the solar panels produce energy, which is not consumed and not put on the grid, that this energy will go into the battery? In other words: Will this "future" setup allow me to see energy flowing into the battery?
If not, how would I need to connect everything?
Please note your sketch map is not accurate.
The CT can only be installed after the inverter(ac output) ,not the solar pannel(dc output)
The energy meter can only measure the AC output,so it can only measure the "ac storage" like the pic above, can not be used to measure the DC battery.
Yes, you are right. I made a mistake in my drawings.
Would this correctly show the battery as charging when connected like this?
As I said before.
The meter can only measure the AC, not DC.So it can not measure the DC battery.
Normally, the AC storage is parallel to the load on the grid, as the sketch map in my first replies.
In my opinion, the ESS+battery is equal to the "ac storage"
If you put the CT on the output of the ESS, the energy meter would measure it, you will see the charging and discharging of the ESS.
But these operations (charging/discharging) are with regard to the ac storage(ess), not the dc battery.
