Hello everyone,
i doesn't understand the meaning of the values in column Power in the DayData Table.
Can someone describe the meaning of the column? Thank you in advance!

sbfspot does follow the formats and values as in use bij SMA (sunny explorer)
so SBFspot uses (produces) the tables with same format and contents

in reply to your question:
  • the column with date-time corresponds to the "own-day-time-stamp" of the inverter
    this is important in the case that the internal clock of your inverter deviates from your computer
  • the software of your inverter will take each 5 minutes a snapshot of the value for "total-yield" <- second column
    and store this value in the "daily-table"
  • the "power" value is a calculated value (by the inverter)
    "power == ( "curr-total-yield" minus "previous-total-yield" ) multiplied with 12
    so -> power is the delta of the yield (in kWh) averaged over the previous 5 minute period (1hour to 5minutes = 12)
  • that "average" power is expressed in kW
  • as a result of being calculated -> you will notice that:
    -- its value is allways a multiple of 0,012
    -- unreliable values at sunrise or sunset
kind regards wim
