Forcing the battery to charge from Solar PV

Sat, 09 Apr 2022 10:26:55 GMT

I am trying to get the model to store all excess solar generation during times of solar production so that the battery can supply the load after sunlight hours. On top of this, I want to include peak shaving such that the system avoids peak charges at certain times of the year. I have tried to get the DER-VET simulation to do this, but in all my attempts the battery remains dormant and the 'excess' solar generation gets sent to the grid. I have seen that there are User-Defined imputs, but I am slightly unsure if I can use these to manipulate the system such that the conditions mentioned above are forced to take place? Does anyone know if this can be done or have done something similar in the past?
