Wind generator monitrting

Hello All ,

I have a victron system using a victron Cerbo Gx. I have a smart shunt in line with my house battery bank. I would like to monitor my wind generator. I was thinking of using a second smart shunt inline with the wind generator to do this.wile there are no guide lines to do this I think this should work, any thoughts?I have an Eclectic Energy D400 wind generator

Yes this works. Set the Smart Shunt inline with the wind generator in DC Monitor mode and set to Wind Gen. This is what it looks like in VenusOS...

Nice screenshots Mark


note that this needs v2.80, currently in beta. See v2.80~41 post I made just now, includes changelog and some details about this feature.

I do believe that there's a bug on the VRM platform when you try to display a SmartShunt that's configured as DC energy meter-Wind charger.


Devicelist. It's there but without icon:

Advanced - Widgets. Doesn't appear here:

@PhilipR At present the DC Monitor function is not displayed in VRM. It is a new capability and not everything is in place. I am sure that Victron will be addressing this as soon as they can.
