The past couple of weeks I’ve been working on an Android application to look at the solar panel production. The following screenshots show what this has lead to.

The left picture shows the start-up screen, with a photograph of the actual panels and six buttons for each of the screens. The middle picture shows the production in tabular form. The red coloring is for the 10% worst production days overall, the green coloring for the 10% best days overall. The grey background is for Saturdays and Sundays. The right picture shows the temperature of the inverter and the booster. It seems that the inverter tries to keep the temperature of the booster below 50 degrees. It does something – I don’t know what yet – until the temperature reaches 40 degrees:

The application works in both portrait mode and landscape mode. The left picture shows the production for each day from installation until the current day. The right picture shows the production on a single day, with buttons to select the day:

      Hello Martin,

      I have written this application a long time ago and have gotten a new inverter in the meantime. The app also depends on a back-end server that is not running anymore. So unfortunately, even if I gave you the app it wouldn’t function.

      Best regards,
