The norwegian goverment have introduced a power peak fee. That means if my hot water heater is turning on, and some oven is also on, I need to reduce my charging power, and restart it later. This is working very good at the moment.
But OVMS cant handle it! When I stop the charging (its controlled from the charging box), ovms reports charging finished, even at 35% SOC. When I 1-2 hours later restart the charging it reports on the event topic 'charging.done' and 'charging.preparing', but still the charging topic and so on are still reporting off.
I've tried to publish a message on the active topic, and OVMS reports back that 1 peer is connected and also the event topic is saying "app.connected", but still it doesnt give me the charging info. The 12V battery is at >14V, and then the software should know that something is going on. Either the car is actually ON, or its charging, its never at that high voltage when idling/sleep.
Sorry to say, but after spending 300$/245£ on this module, and a couple of hours to get it to work with my home automation I must say that I'm a bit disapointed by the software, and what it seems like this have been a problem for many years, and no one is caring to fix it. (Yes, I know its an open-source project and anyone can contribute but still its priced like a fully working module)
At least i'm getting my SOC every 600 seconds, so that will work...
