Integrate the DC generator into the VRM portal

I have a BHKW with DC generator that I would like to integrate as a generator in the VRM portal. I already have a BMV700 connected to it and can at least see the voltage and current in the portal. Is there a way to integrate it as a generator?

Hi @Stromsparer99

I don't believe so. Even with an AC generator charging through a Multiplus, VRM doesn't seem to keep a producible record of genset energy. The green entries you've outlined are only the direct Consumption coming from the genset, not the total it's produced.

Even the boxes beside the System Overview barchart show only 'To Grid' and 'From Grid', even when Generator is selected and Grid not shown in the main Dashboard.

And what you seek is a step further again. But this stuff is under continual development, and it may well change in the future..
