Can API be used for discharge / recharge import / export grid?

Hi there,

I live in an area with notoriously bad dirty (low voltage) power issues and as a result have an interesting spike in power price. I am wondering if the API can be used to instruct discharge when price is high and similarly charge from grid when price is low?

I have not been able to deduce these commands from the api docs here: https://docs.victronenergy.com/vrmapi/overview.html#introduction

I have written a program to handle spot price already, I am just trying to figure out the best way to instruct victron.


Thanks,


Mike
