On a backfed PV installation (that is, an installation where excess solar production is fed back through a breaker on the main distribution panel to the utility) it is relatively easy to see the net import and export of power.
The eGauge can record network connection quality as a percentage value (0..100). This information is displayed on the Status page (http://DEVNAME.egaug.es/status.html) under "Connection Quality" by default, but historical values are not stored. Storing network connection quality as a register may be useful
The eGauge can calculate Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) on a given CT or voltage reference. Each THD measurement will use one physical register. To do so: Navigate to Settings -> Installation Under Registers, click the "Add Registers" button Name the register as appropriate Using the dropdown
By default, the eGauge will record Power registers as the "Net" (=) subtype. This means the register will record power flow in both directions. Positive readings will be graphed as a green line, and negative readings as a red line. However,
The eGauge can be set to record individual CT amperages as separate registers. Unlike power registers, amperage registers are absolute values (they do not change polarity to reflect the directional flow of current). To add amperage registers: Navigate to Settings -> Installation Under Registers, click
Voltage registers are configured in much the same way as power registers (the default register type on the eGauge). To add a voltage register: Navigate to Settings -> Installation Under Registers, click the "Add Registers" button Name the register as appropriate Using the dropdown menu, change
The EG4xxx has two USB ports which may be utilized for communicating with third-party serial devices via the eGauge RS485-USB converter. This effectively replaces the BF-430 used with older model eGauges. In addition, a network connection is not required, as
High-gain mode is available on the EG4xxx hardware only. To enable high-gain mode, navigate to Settings -> Installation. Check the "Use high-gain mode" option just above the dropdown menus for CT selection. High-gain mode selection box High-gain mode amplifies the incoming signal from
