Solar ENergy and Automation (Internet of Things - IoT)
SENA is a Project which started from 6KWp Photostatic System for household usage.
This became the very first sub-system, based upon which I have elaborated another sub-systems of the overall SENA Project as described below:
The above PV OFF-Grid system has the advantage in a case of insufficient sun power to automatically switch in bypass mode for providing electrical energy directly from public Utility Grid /220V in EU/.
Hot water heating devices X 4pcs (two in the basement and one per 1st and 2nd floors) from commercially mass produced ARISTON SHP ECO 100 V 1.8K link
Without any interventions on the original ARISTON’s electronics, I’ve equipped each of the water heaters with additional 10K thermistor for reading the temperature of the water in real time using: Thermistor, interfacing with NodeMCU Also the NodeMCU Arduino based ESP8266 controller is capable to switch ON and OFF the ARISTON water heater with emulating power ONOFF push button with a small DUAL IN LINE REED RELAY /1 normally open contact/
(detailed description and additionally used libraries/protocols like MQTT will be elaborated separately in Wiki part of the **SENA Project**)
Monitoring UV Index, Visual Light and IR Light nearby photostatic strings.
Switching ON/OFF 220V Energy entry from Public Grid and bypassing PV Conversol module to directly supply Grid 220V over the nights.
The project is 85% ready and in-production. The final 15% of Server side function and business logic are still to me finalized. Detailed description will follow.
