I would like to "play" with some loads when I have available sun and do not wish the MTTP to throttle (idle).
My idea is to send any excess solar to the boiler element (depending on weather, temp, time, SOC, etc) and maybe a circulation pump. I was thinking, if during the day when the house is in "idle" any overrun from the MPPT can be directed to the element. Some sort of IFTTT concept.... if you know what I mean.
How would you go about this? I do not wish to be a burden on anyone, so if you have a good HOW TO START youtube video or ......, I would highly appreciate it as I can try to figure it out on my own.
I also assume that some sort of relay is necessary to activate the load (maybe AC2out is an option)?
I have heard of NodeRed (not sure what it can do or what is necessary) and grafana but as stated I am not sure how to go about this. Do I need HomeAssist? or ..... for the Victron equipment?
I guess in the end, I would like to (almost) go for a smart home approach.
As stated above, any help would be appropriated.
