Applications for the linear power controller

  • Hi there I wish to apply for the linear power controller.
  • I have 20kw of solar on a 3 phase installation.
  • I am controlling a 2.4 kw hot water load that is currently on a timer but will be controlled directly by this new device.
  • I have a 10 kw battery
  • I have a 3 phase iammeter meter measuring the import and export of power to my premises
  • I have a 3 phase iammeter meter measuring my solar production across 3 phase
  • I have a 3 phase iammeter meter measuring my loads so I know my true consumption in the house hold
  • I use a single phase iammeter meter to measure the ups power supplied when operating in grid backup mode.
  • Current bills range from 20 to $40 per month and with this device I hope to reduce it to 0
  • I am a solar contractor and a licenced electrical contractor in Australia.
  • I am keen to test this device and promote it's use to my customers.

Hi.

I'd like to apply for this.

I have a hot water system with a resistive load of 3.5kW.  I have 30kW solar with a 3 phase grid connection and Tesla Powerwall.
I use iammeter cloud with 1 x WEM3080T and 4 x WEM3080, I also poll the APIs locally for use in home asistant.
The WEM3080T monitors the grid connection, 1 of the WEM3080 monitors the battery and the other 3 monitor the solar production at various convenient collection points.
I have not paid a power bill in 5 years and I am in credit each quarter by $200-$300 depending on the season/weather with an 8c FIT.  My hot water system is currently being controlled by Home assistant to run during solar maximum, and currently is set to not turn on if there is insufficient spare power -  {{ states('sensor.entire_site_solar_generation') | float - states('sensor.live_power_usage_2') | float > 4}} only turn on if there's 4kW of spare solar available.  Some days I can't heat the water without dipping into the bettery, this would be great to lower the heating element wattage to suit the available power as a proof of concept!

Hi , please confirm whether this 2.4kw hot water load is 1phase or 3phase ?

Please post a new topic in the forum by copying your content into a new topic, rather than replying under this one. Each user posting an individual topic will make the discussions clearer. This approach will be especially helpful if you encounter any issues, allowing us to discuss and address them specifically under your own topic.

Thank you!

please provide the spec of the resistive load, like this https://www.solahart.com.au/products/solar-water-heating/solahart-l-series/302l/


we need to confirm whether the load is compatible with SCR-485 (voltage and current are within the rating of SCR-485)

The activity of the first batch sample testing will end soon. 

Looking forward to your further information.
