What am I trying to achieve?
Charge the battery, or discharge the battery based on external input (via MQTT, but ultimately based on variable electricity tariff status)
I am up and running in Node-Red on the Venus GX 'large' image and am able to set the Multiplus to the following modes;
However if I set the multiplus to 'charger only' it obviously won't charge if I'm not in a scheduled charge slot.
If I set up a scheduled charge slot to be active at all times, then I can charge / not charge on demand by setting the 'Disable Charge' flag to either 0 or 1.
However when in the 'don't charge' state, it also won't discharge the battery as I'm in a scheduled charging slot.
I've tried setting the AC power setpoint instead of charging within a scheduled charging time, but it doesn't seem to do anything if I try the following;
Can anyone offer any recommendations on how I can switch between charging or discharging to meet my requirement?
