In order to set Dynamic Load Balancing, you need set up and external meter, connect it to Monta, and add it to the Load Balancing Group. Monta currently supports Enegic and ABB ModBus.
Click on + Add meter and select the type
Select the correct placement
Including charge points = Meter measures building + charge points being used
Excluding charge points = Meter measures only how many amps the building is using
Input a Dynamic buffer
A safety buffer to ensure that we are not exceeding the total capacity when the building’s consumption changes. Recommended value is the highest expected increase in the building’s consumption within one minute.
Input Fail-safe amps
Number of amps to use, if the meter cannot communicate current consumption to Monta.
Click on Save changes
Add or remove charge points
Click on Add or remove charge points
Use search bar to find charge points by address or serial number
Select the charge point/s
Selecting a charge point will automatically add it to the Load Balancing Groups
A charge point can belong to one Group at a time
Selecting a charge point with more than one connector will automatically add all connectors to the Group
Create a Sub-group
You can also create a Sub-group, which represents a subset of charge points, sharing the same available amps on the site. To create a Sub-group, click on Add sub-group
You can only add an external meter to the main group, not to a Sub-group.
Once the charge point is added, you will be able to see the following information:
State – See if the charge point is Available, Busy or Unavailable.
Phase order – This is the order of the phases on the charge point. It is important that it is setup correctly. You can consult the electrician who has connected the wiring on the charge point to confirm the order. It is used for phase rotation.
Max Amps – The maximum amount of Amps that will be available for the charge point.
Prioritize – If you select to prioritize a charge point, this will be applied when distributing the current among the charge points in use.
Remember to click “Save Changes”.
Please note that you cannot configure the advanced settings of charge points, if you are using a Locally Managed – Easee setup.
