Smart PV – store solar power conveniently
Smart PV is energy management for energy-efficient integration of power production in your heating system.
The innovative technology of Smart PV enables storage of surplus solar power in the heating system. The superfluous energy is stored in the water by a heater rod with a maximum output of 2 kW. Smart PV measures all electrical loads in the building and records power drawn from the grid, power fed to the grid and on-site consumption. Data is evaluated via the heating controller or very clearly via online access to the heating system.
Utilisation of surplus electricity with Smart PV offers the following benefits:
- Reduction in the payback period for your PV system (or other power generator)
- Identification and shutting down of power guzzlers
- Greater efficiency thanks to higher level of on-site consumption
- Online weather data processing – the boiler waits for the solar yield, thereby reducing the heating costs
- Variable utilisation of surplus solar power from 0–100%
- Operation and visualisation from your heating system’s Touch controller
- Can be integrated into existing and new systems
The benefits of Smart PV at a glance
Reduces the payback period for your PV system
Greater on-site consumption saves money
The focus in the past with PV systems was on the feed-in compensation. Due to the reduction in feed-in subsidies, on-site consumption has become increasingly important in increasing cost-effectiveness.
With Smart PV, you feed the surplus electricity into your heating system, thereby reducing the heating runtime. This saves money.
Greater yield thanks to online weather data
More intelligent means more economical
Processing of online weather data means that the intelligent system knows when to expect solar power.
To enable storage of as much of the free energy as possible, the controller keeps the cylinder cold and blocks the boiler until no more yield is expected. Only then does the boiler start heating – if necessary.
Say goodbye to power guzzlers
Recording identifies highest consumption
Through continuous recording of the building’s power consumption, Smart PV is able to detect hidden power guzzlers.
Appliances that drive consumption higher can be identified in the clearly arranged graphical analysis and then disconnected from the mains.
