Add EV charger (via OCPP) to IAMMETER
After controlling the charger via OCPP, the self-use rate of solar increases dramatically.
Welcome to let us know your thoughts here https://imeter.club/
For easy testing of the function regarded EV charger(via OCPP) in IAMMETER-cloud, we provide a simulated EV charger in IAMMETER-simulator.
This EV charger simulator will help you understand 1 How to connect the OCPP charger to the IAMMETER 2 How does IAMMETER charge the car by the solar excess 3 How to use the function that regards to charger in IAMMETER 4 The self-use rate difference when you use the solar excess to charge the car
**New features of IAMMETER-simulator: Simulate an EV charger(EV charger simulator) **
Install the latest version of IAMMETER-simulator
The IAMMETER-simulator can be installed from a docker IMG or run it directly .
More details ,please refer to
Run the IAMMETER-simulator
Connect the EV charger simulator in IAMMETER-cloud
Add an EV charger in IAMMETER
Set the automation policy for EV charger
After setting the automation policy, IAMMETER will control the charging process of the EV charger from OCPP. If you like, you can only use the solar surplus to charge the EV.
Connect EV-charger simulator to IAMMETER-cloud
OCPP server: ws://ocpp.iammeter.com/ocpp
Charge Point Id: this is created by the IAMMETER system as below. If the charge ID is read-only in the OCPP charger, you can also use it directly here
Maximum charging power (W): the maximum charging power of this simulator
Total battery capacity (kWh): the maximum battery capacity of this simulator
Simulated the charging from the EV charger simulator
View the charging process on IAMMETER
After a place is added a charger, there will be an extra "charge power" curve displayed on the power graph of the overview page.
View the charging history in this way.
You will find the hourly charging status, including the hourly charging kWh and solar percentage. Then you can check whether the result is the same as your automation policy setting.
