The peak shaving application limits the peak power drawn from the public distribution network. The application allows limiting the electricity subscription to a power which is lower than what is actually required. It also makes it possible to avoid any penalties linked to exceeding the subscribed power.
Peak Shaving Application Interface
Integrated into the IMEON OS. ONE operating system, the “Peak Shaving” is an innovative application developed by IMEON ENERGY and accessible free of charge to owners of an Imeon hybrid inverter.
Imeon inverters come packaged together with a Smart Meter, which is a device responsible for measuring the consumption of the electricity drawn from public electricity grid and reporting the real time consumption value to Imeon. Thanks to the peak shaving application, one can fix a power consumption value (in Watts) from which the inverter will start injecting the renewable energy coming from the PV array and/or batteries to compensate the consumption from the grid. If the consumption value of a 1000W is set in the application, it means that consumption of power from the grid of up to 1000W is allowed and anything above that value should be compensated by the solar system. The compensation will be secured within the possibilities of the inverter, which means that a 3kW Imeon 3.6 will be able to offset up to 3kW of consumption from the grid if energy from the PV array and/or battery is available at that time. Thanks to the information sent to the inverter by the Smart Meter the Imeon will actively, in real time, adapt the power injected to the grid to avoid exporting the power. However, if the export of excess photovoltaic production is beneficial for the user of the system, such export can then be enabled.
If the consumption value configured in Peak shaving application is set to 0 Watts, the inverter will attempt to offset any consumption of electricity from the public electricity grid. A possibility to configure the offset point, provides much needed flexibility, making Imeon an inverter that can perfectly fulfill more complex requirements.
Much more than a manufacturer of solar hybrid inverters, IMEON ENERGY is constantly developing new software applications and working on projects related to artificial intelligence in order to improve the performance of its solutions and the satisfaction of owners of IMEON hybrid inverters.
