    Artificially limited solar production during PG&E PSPS outage

    It does, but from the SolarEdge docs, it looks like it added various "slow start" modes based on voltage and frequency.

    Artificially limited solar production during PG&E PSPS outage

    I'm trying to figure out from SolarEdge's documentation what its behavior is when down at 59.7. I checked my data from last year's PG&E outages. The PW kept a 60Hz baseline with spikes upwards to throttle the PV when the battery was near full. I have no idea why the PW went low frequency this...

    Artificially limited solar production during PG&E PSPS outage

    What inverter do you have and do you know if it is set for Rule 21? In my area PG&E, you set a SolarEdge to USA34 (240V with neutral).

    Artificially limited solar production during PG&E PSPS outage

    I can guaranteed it was not clouds. The sky was crystal clear on both days. Even with a few wispy clouds, a drop of 60%+ is not expect. You can see in the first graph that production seems to have a cap of just under 1.5kW. I checked some more of my data. During the course of the outage...

    Surviving the PG&E test?

    I too am in the middle of the PG&E fun. I worked with Tesla after the first PG&E outage and before the second one, to get them to fix the frequency issue. Here is a snippet of the graph when the power went off during this latest outage: My entire house is filled, except for a couple of...

    New Cal fire code for Powerwalls?

    I guess I better start parking my 150kW worth of Tesla cars outside the garage 3 ft from the nearest wall :-)

    Question about total_pack_energy from the Tesla Customer API

    I have a newly commissioned 8.19 kWh PV + 2 Powerwall system. The hardware itself was installed 7/16. It took a while for the building inspector to sign off on the install (he found chipped roof tiles that Tesla had to replace). PG&E sent the PTO about 8 days after Tesla submitted the...
