Charging at higher current than available from solar

Hi Everyone,

I have recently built a kit and love it. Initially the current readings were out so i calibrated this to the actual current flowing via clamp meter. Post this i have been trying to figure out why the car charges at a much higher rate than the available solar export. I have recently erased and upgraded the WIFI firmware controller to 4.1.7, EVSE on 8.2.2.

Any advice greatly appreciated!

I managed to figure this out - quite a simple fix that might help someone else later on possibly!

In the solar_pv settings i did not read the note in regards to:

Note: It's assumed that EVSE power is included in the grid feed

With the EVSE included in the MQTT feed all is now well.
