@martinj and the Libre Solar team has begun testing of the Battery Management System (BMS) with the first participant, Urban Morph, connecting their Open BMS to their battery.
Below is a snapshot of the data that has started being sent for their system to the cloud. While there have been a few delays due to clearance issues for our other testers, they are expected to soon have their BMS online to help further validate the BMS. It’s exciting to see Libre Solar reach this milestone.
The platform uses Grafana and VictoriaMetrics as the data storage, which are both open source. The backend software we use for testing, which receives the data from the devices and puts it into the database, is currently not open source. However, we provide a Python script that can be easily adopted to any data storage backend you have.
thank you, Martin. very useful.
Do you know if there is also an open source battery system (hardware and software) that can be used to test an experimental battery?
And are you planning to make your BMS interfacing with such a battery testing system?
in the first instance we want to text a 2x24V/ 4 kW vanadium redox flow battery system. After that, we hope to also replace its proprietary BMS with an open source one.
If you know a specialist up to the job, we can provide the resources. you can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org
