29 Jun Leveling power load peaks and optimising energy use from the sonnenBatterie
The sonnen battery is KNX-compatible. This allows a HEMS to access flexible loads in the home to level out load peaks and optimise energy use from the sonnen battery.
A year ago, sonnen joined the KNX Association. In the meantime, the company has introduced the sonnen KNX module, which sends the data points from the sonnen battery to the KNX bus. Communication is unidirectional: various devices in the smart home can be controlled more efficiently via the data from the sonnen battery. This includes the high-resolution measured values in the energy system, the status parameters of the sonnen battery and operating modes. This allows visualisations to be carried out and consumers to be controlled.
