Sungrow Inverter Setup

Sungrow Inverter Setup

Note: This setup process is more easily done on a computer.

Supported Equipment

Sungrow inverters and hybrid inverters are supported.

If your system includes a Sungrow consumption meter then Charge HQ will obtain consumption data and you can charge from excess solar.

Hybrid (battery) inverters are supported including eg SH5K-20 and SH5.0RS.

Currently only systems which are visible on the Australian iSolarCloud server are supported. If your system is installed in Australia / New Zealand but is accessed via the International / HK iSolarCloud server, please contact Sungrow service team: 1800 786 476 and ask if your system can be migrated to the Australian server. If this is not possible, please let us know at info@chargehq.net.

Data Delays

Sungrow data is delayed by about 3 to 10 minutes due to the performance of the Sungrow API. Unfortunately there is no way to improve this. Solar tracking should still work quite well despite the delays.

Step 1

Login to Sungrow iSolarCloud and select your site (aka "plant").

Step 2

Navigate to Plant Configuration -> Plant.

Scroll down to Channel / Partner.

Click Settings.

Step 3

Click Add.

Enter connect@chargehq.net in the Email field.

Leave Viewers selected.

Click Confirm.

This grants Charge HQ read-only permission to access your iSolarCloud data.

Step 4

Confirm the settings look like this.

Step 5

Copy the psId value from the browser URL bar. The value contains only numbers eg 123456.

Do not include the "=" or "&" characters.

Step 6

Using the Charge HQ webapp, click My Equipment -> Solar Data Source

Select Type: Sungrow iSolarCloud.

Paste your psId value from above and click Save.

You should see a success message if it works.

Charge HQ will now be receiving data from your Sungrow inverter, and the solar tracking settings should now be visible on the Charging Settings screen.

If you go back into My Hardware -> Solar Data Source it should now display your Sungrow devices, eg:
