This would be "download your data" gadget? You would include all your streams?

Topic: Getting Started / Getting cost for two streams

I should have read the user manual more thoroughly. 

No harm in doing a re-calculation?

There is a gadget you can add to your dashboard that will do just that :D

Recalculations aren't necessary when changing unit types or the current value ;)

Only when adding new streams - or removing them if you would like the new stream that may have historical data to be re-processed.

Topic: Getting Started / Energy Calculations for on-demand billing

Is there a way to create a gauge and display cost/calculations for demand based billing. My utility company charges me different rates based on the time of day and demand that is put on the grid between certain times of day. I would like to create some gauges or chartes to track this and reduce my demand. Below is a sample of the bill rates.

Nov - April

On-peak kwh = $0.05747

Off-peak kwh = $.04107

demand charge per kw = $9.30

May - Oct

on-peak kwh = $.08867

off-peak kwh = $.04417

deman charge per kw = $13.50

 

a sample of my monthly bill looks like this

on-peak = 1105

off-peak = 1457

demand = 10.2

I believe demand is based on the peak energy used during a 1hr period. I use to have a computer to monitor this to turn of certain appliances during this time to reduce the demand. I am in the process of recreating this using my home automation system.

Thanks

Ahhh, that makes sense (Raw vs aggregate.)  I guess I need to create additional streams.  I would like to see both.  Thanks, I'll work through this and see how it goes.

Why am I using two channels?  I had the extra channel, so that wasn't an issue.  Figured I'd see just how balanced am I on my panel.  No real good reason otherwise!

OK I think I know what is going on, your setting in the "total mains_power" for "current valve" change from aggregated to raw.

My assumption was that you wanted the accumulated cost for the day. Which is the aggregated setting and or days. When set to raw it only displays current. 

Also remember that on calculated streams there is a delay in the updating of the data in the widget.

One other question why are you using two channels to monitor the mains?

Are my screen shots not showing up above?  They show exactly what is displaying.  If not, let me know and I'll try another way.  A picture is worth a thousand words!

I haven't even setup a dashboard or gadget yet.  All I did was setup a stream to add leg1 and leg2 - and the result appears wrong.

Here's some more info -

What is actual being displayed for that gadget?

when you added the the "total mains power" Stream did you check off the Calculated Box under "Some info about How this stream works"? This option can be accessed by going into "total main power" stream and selecting the blue ">" on the right side of the stream. This will display a new page, select the edit tab on top. Make sure "Type of data" is set for Energy,wh, Also under "some info about how this streams work" make sure active is checked along with calculated. In addition Calibration is set to 1.0. When done Hit, if you changed the calibration, the re-calibrate button. Regardless of any changes hit the re-calculate button. Also before exiting hit the save button.

let me know if it is set this way and then we can go from there

Did hit the reset calcs button, but didn't make a difference.  Yes, made a new widget.  See my screen shot above.  All I'm trying to do is total two inputs; unfortunately, the result is not the total.

Did you hit the reset calculations button on the new stream? Also did you setup a new widget and call it Total?

I did, but that's not even in play here.  I'm just trying to add leg1 and leg2's power together.  When I do, they're not adding up correctly.  Haven't even gotten to costing yet.

Did you set your energy cost amount in your pofile, which can be found under the settings tab?

Topic: Getting Started / Getting cost for two streams

OK, finally figured that out, but the numbers don't seem to be calculating right.  Maybe I'm doing something wrong?  Below is a screen shot of my main leg1 and the total main power.  Leg 2 isn't being monitored yet and is 0 because I'm waiting for a replacement coil.

 

 

And here's the calc I setup -

 

What am I doing wrong?
