No problem, just wondering :)

I'm trying something myself, I just added an additional meter using eflow, basically just by adding the following part to the code:

Code: Select all

if ($argv[1] == 'whbatt') { // battery
                    $val = $prevarray[$whbattmet] + $housep - $housec; 
					if ($val > $WhBattery) //if battery is full, battery capacity is shown
						$val = $WhBattery;
					elseif  ($val < 0) //if battery is empty, 0 is shown
						$val = 0;
and in the CSV I have the correct Wh stored in the "virtual" battery, but the graph is wrong.
As far as I understood, the graph shows the difference between 2 consecutive values in the CSV, right?

What I would need it to show the actual Wh stored in the battery, but I guess this is against the general ideas of graphs in metern..

Yes the graph makes the difference between 2 samples.
You can still make a meter type for a battery but the counter shall always increase. I believe you need two meters 'battery charge' & 'battery discharge'
