Alert on system reporting but power = 0?


#1

what is the right way for me to configure the alerts to handle this situation:

my inverter reported normally all day, however, it for some reason faulted while trying to synchronize with the grid. therefore, although it was reporting (open circuit) voltages all day, it was also reporting 0 instantaneous power and 0 energy produced in each sample. i didn’t notice this till the early afternoon and so lost a day of generation (rebooting the inverter fixed the problem.)

i see that you can alert on average power < some amount in some time window, but i wonder if that’s the right way to capture this situation.

thanks!

that,s what i have done ,works well for me,as when it stops making power i need to know asap-Jim

thanks - yeah right before posting the question i set that average power thing up and it actually fired on the morning’s lack of generation so it looks like it’s going to work.
