our setup is a standard AC-coupled single-phase multiplus-II based ESS (connected to phase 1). However, we do not have any PV, but a 230 AC fuelcell unit running 24/7 (connected to phase 2).
The generated electricity is continously measured and monitored, and the data is available on a homeserver, but it is not (yet) included in the VRM overview.
To achieve this, I guess I could include another CG 1-phase meter, but I was wondering whether I also achieve this by:
- setting up a modbusTCP server on the mentioned homeserver and
- asking the Venus GX device to look to the modbusTCP server - pretty much as if it was an SMA PV inverter (=> https://www.victronenergy.com/live/ccgx:ccgx_sma)
For this I would have to make the modbusTCP server look like a SMA PV inverter.
I've also seen a rather old entry in google groups:
My preference would be a solution where I do not need to customize the VenusOS install, but I'd like to ask, which solution would be the easiest/preferred.
Thanks for any comment/suggestion/hint.
