Title: Adjusted Load MTU 1 HELP PLEASE
Post by: AZ 2012 on April 15, 2012, 11:37:44 PM
I have MTU 1 set to adjusted load clamped to the main feeds and MTU 2 set to generation "solar" clamped to the solar feed comming into the breaker panel.

Problem is during the day when no one is home MTU 1 is at 6.797 KWH and MTU 2 is at -4.284 KWH but the house meter is spinning backwards. How can this be

I am trying to find out how much I am putting back into the grid and when

There's something more then that going on.  He can't possibly be putting 6.797 into the system if his solar system is only creating 4.284.  At least one number has to be wrong.

I'd verify that the voltage settings are correct for the way he has the leads connected.  I'd also make sure that MTU 1 & 2 isn't recorded backwards in the software.
