The Load Control is a component that allows, through a Power Meter, to disconnect loads using a priority defined when the consumption is too high. The user can at any time both disable the entire functionality or exclude the single load from the control logic. To be used it is necessary to have at least one Power Meter component in the project and to have configured loads as indicated in the following guide.

COMPONENT’S PROPERTIES

Customizable component’s title and icon. Please refer to “Common properties” guide.

GUI

This component’s sample is made by using Graphic UI gateway.

Please refer to “Gateways / Protocols” chapter in order to get further info.

Power On / Off: Switch component that powers On or shuts Off the load;

Auto / Manual: If the Switch is set to Automatic mode it will be managed by the Load Control component, vice versa if the switch is set to Manual it will not be managed by the Load Control.

Both switches can be added within the user interface to allow users to interact with load settings.

Note: text field available for additional information on the component from the admin side.

This component allows you to supervise the energy consumption of the system and schedule the shutdown of several loads when reaching a defined threshold.

Enable component: check box which defines whether the function is enabled or disabled on the system.

Power consumption meter: Power meter component in charge of power consumption metering;

Max power threshold [W]: thereshold [Watt] beyond which the first load is powered off;

Customizable max power threshold: Tuner component that allows to customize the threshold value;

This tuner can be added to the user interface to let users customize the max power threshold.

Shut off delay [s]: delay between the shutdown of a load and another [seconds];

Power on delay [s]: delay between the power on of a load and another [seconds];

Note: text field available for additional information on the component from the admin side.

Customizable max power threshold: Tuner component that allows to customize the threshold value;

This tuner can be added to the user interface to let users customize the max power threshold.

Load control enabling switch: Switch component that defines if the function is enabled or disabled;

This switch can be added to the user interface to let users enabling / disabling the load control function.

Loads: loads list which have to be taken into account for the Load control function;

Selection is carried out by dragging Load components from “My components” area to the box.

Loads priority: the order of this list defines the shutdown priority of the loads (priority from top to the bottom) and the activation priority of the loads (priority from bottom to the top).

Reminder before continuing:

  • Remember to install or update the EVE Logic plugin to use this component (link);
  • After loading the .eve project on the server, wait a couple of minutes to perform functional tests.

Well done, keep learning!
