This application allows the IMEON inverter to turn on a washing machine when it detects an excess of solar production in order to increase the rate of self-consumption and the autonomy of the house.
Washing machine Application Interface
Integrated into the IMEON OS. ONE operating system, the Blockchain is an innovative application developed by IMEON ENERGY and accessible free of charge to owners of an Imeon hybrid inverter.
In order to amortize as quickly as possible its solar installation for self-consumption, it is essential to consume the maximum of the energy produced by the photovoltaic installation since the electricity injected to the public electricity distribution network is very little or not at all valorized. The “Washing Machine” application has been developed precisely to maximise the rate of self-consumption. The operating principle is simple: when an excess of solar production is detected by the Smart-Meter (solar production higher than the consumption of the building), the IMEON inverter will close its internal relay, on which the installer will have previously cabled the washing machine. If the “On” button of the washing machine has been previously pressed (mechanical push-button only), it will then start operating and use the solar kWh which, without the activation of the application, would have been injected into the public grid.
This principle, also called “load control”, is equivalent to creating a “solar off-peak hour”. This application only works for washing machines with a mechanical button launch (no electronic programming). The wiring to be carried out for the operation of this application can be different depending on the type of electricity tariff (for example peak and off-peak hours in France).
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.
