 # Time Periods

#1

I’m struggling with getting my Time Periods set correctly. It doesn’t look difficult but I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong.

Peak time is NOON - 6PM
Super Off-Peak is Midnight to 5 AM
Off Peak = All Other times.
This is what I have set:

This is what I’m seeing:

On 8/3 I generated almost 11 kWh more than I consumed. Shouldn’t the total of Peak + Off-Peak + Shoulder reflect that and be close to negative 11?

The peak, off peak and shoulder are the time of use import figures calculated at each 5-minute interval when consumption is greater than generation during that time period. The export figure would also need to be considered to balance out.

``````time   Gen.  Con.
10:00   50   100  = 50 import
10:30   50    50  =  0 import
11:00   20    10  =  0 import / 10 export

Total Generation = 120
Total Consumption = 160
Total Import = 50
Total Export = 10``````

Sorry, I’m not understanding your figures at the bottom.

time Gen. Con.
10:00 50 100 = 50 import
10:30 50 50 = 0 import
11:00 10 20 = 10 Import

Total Generation = 50 +50 + 10 =110
Total Consumption = 100 + 50 + 20 = 170
Total Import = 60
Total Export = 0

In any case, are there some settings that I can use that would show me what I’m looking for so I can check the numbers match what I’m being billed for, give or take?

Sorry - the Gen/Con figures at 11:00 were wrong, it should be switched around.

The point is to demonstrate that the Gross Consumption will not total the sum of peak/off peak/shoulder import.

OK, so I take it there is no way to display what I’m wanting, is that correct?
