Efficiency during Charging Solar-Log™ in combination with KEBA Power Charging Stations

12. April 2017

Solar-Log™ is a leading inverter-independent energy management system. In addition to professional PV plant monitoring and the optimal feed-in management of PV energy into the power grid, the Solar-Log™ can also intelligently management and prioritize one's own energy consumption (Solar-Log™ Smart Energy).
KEBA power charging stations make it possible to charge electric cars from different manufacturers.
The compatibility between the Solar-Log™ and the KEBA power charging stations provide the option to better utilize (self-consumption optimization) one's own PV energy when charging electric cars. Electric cars can be more efficiently charged PV energy with the current limiting function.
This ensures that the car always reaches its minimum charge level even when no PV energy is available. When there is a PV energy surplus, the Solar-Log™ informs the KEBA charging station that additional power is available to charge the car beyond the minimum charge level.
The charge data can be recorded and concisely visualized with the Solar-Log™ WEB portal. This is possible without affecting the charging process.
The Solar-Log™ can detect charging station malfunctions. The allows for rapid troubleshooting.  The Solar-Log™ and KEBA charging station use an Ethernet connection for communication.
