Monitor your solar PV system with WiFi Energy monitor

Please visit Solar pv monitoring system of IAMMETER-cloud to login the demo account of IAMMETER-cloud and understand all functions of solar PV monitoring

It will display different UI if you access to demo link via computer or smart phone.

You will see same UI with IAMMETER web portal if you access to the demo link by computer. You will see same UI with IAMMETER app if you access to the demo link by mobile phone. We recommend you to acccess via computer so you can see more functions and reports.

1. Introduction

IAMMETER-solar

Our solar PV monitoring solution includes,

  1. Bi-directional Wi-Fi power meter: single phase energy meter(WEM3080) and 3 phase energy meter(WEM3080T).

  2. Solar PV monitoring system: IAMMETER-cloud or IAMMETER-docker

Bi-directional Wi-Fi energy meter

WEM3080(single phase Wi-Fi energy meter) and WEM3080T(three phase Wi-Fi energy meter) can monitor both the grid power and energy consumption of your solar PV system. Two-way energy can be monitored (consumed "from grid" and exported "to grid") by bi-directional function.

Solar PV monitoring system from IAMMETER-Cloud

IAMMETER is our online energy monitoring system, that can monitor your solar PV system by its web portal and mobile APP. Key features related to IAMMETER solar PV monitoring system are,

  1. Monitor the realtime data: inverter power output, feed-in power(to grid),import energy (from grid), export energy(to grid) etc.
  2. Calculate the parameters: solar PV efficiency, self-consumption ratio, etc.
  3. [various report that help you analyze your analyze your solar pv system](# various report that help you analyze your analyze your solar pv system):help you analyze your solar pv system and improve its performance.

2. Install Wi-Fi energy meter in your solar PV system

2.1 Monitor only "From Grid" and "To Grid" energy by one single phase WiFi energy meter (WEM3080)

Reference QuickStart for monitoring your solar PV system by WEM3080

By installing only one WEM3080 in your single phase solar PV system, you can monitor two-way power and energy , the energy consumed from grid and exported to grid simultaneously.

2.2 Monitor both inverter and grid by one three phase WiFi energy meter (WEM3080T)

Reference Quick Start for monitoring your solar PV system by WEM3080T

By installing only one WEM3080T in your single phase solar PV system, and clamping the first CT onto grid, the second CT onto solar inverter side and the third CT onto load if applicable (you can also leave the third CT unclamped if not needed), you can monitor "From Grid" (the energy consumed from the grid), "To Grid" (the energy imported to the grid) and the energy produced by solar inverter. You will also see the direct self-use energy and the energy consumed by your load.

2.3 More wiring diagrams

There are also many other different applications in different solar PV system, such as three phase grid & three phase solar inverter, or three phase grid & single phase inverter etc. For more details, please refer to More wiring diagram in solar pv monitoring system

3. IAMMETER-cloud (solar PV monitoring application)

With solar PV monitoring application on IAMMETER-cloud, it can improve self-consumption ratio for maximize the ROI of your solar PV system.

See below pictures for key functions of solar PV monitoring application on IAMMETER-cloud.

Real time monitoring (solar yield energy, feed-in power, inverter power, import from grid energy ,export to grid energy, solar pv efficiency)

Display the chart of inverter power and feed-in power.

Display the energy flow chart of the solar PV system.

Display the energy consumption, solar yield energy, bill, self-consumption rate, and solar PV efficiency in one diagram.

solar yield energy, feed-in power, inverter power, import from grid energy ,export to grid energy, solar pv efficiency

Display the solar PV yield energy (hourly, daily,monthly, yearly).

Solar yield energy = direct use energy + export to enegy energy. This diagram shows the specific value of the direct ues energy and export energy.

solar yield energy, direct self-use energy, export to grid energy

Consumption energy= direct use energy + import from grid energy.

This diagram shows the specific value of the direct ues energy and import from grid energy.

energy consumption = direct self-use energy + grid consumption energy

This diagram shows both import energy and export energy together.

Report:Energy Usage and Billing

This report helps you analyze your energy consumption and electricity bills. Different electricity price plan have been supported in IAMMETER-Cloud, such as fix rate, tiered rate,time of use (TOU) rate and advanced TOU rate.

Report:Bills and Income

This report helps you analyze both expense of grid energy consumption and income of solar yield energy.

reports of bills and income for your solar pv system

Report:Bill & Income & Saving

This report shows the total benifit of your solar PV system. solar yield enegy=direct self use energy + export to grid energy . so the total benifit= direct self use energy * electricity price + export to grid energy * feed-in electricity price .

This report will also help you to calculate the self-consumption rate of your solar PV system.

Hourly

4 IAMMETER-docker

If you want to deploy the solar PV monitorong system on your own server, we also provide a self-hosting system, IAMMETER-docker.

Please visit below links for introduction of IAMMETER-docker.

Basic tutorial of IAMMETER-docker

Advanced Feature of IAMMETER-docker

5 Integrate IAMMETER energy meter to third-party platforms

In addition to IAMMETER-cloud and IAMMETER-Docker, you can also configure IAMMETER products to upload data to other open source platforms or customers' own systems.

Integrate IAMMETER energy meter to third-party platforms other than Home assistant

IAMMETER products can upload energy data to customer`s own server by MQTT, tcp, http,https or TLS.

Please refer to Integrate IAMMETER energy meter to third-party platforms
