Kostal Plenticore Solar Inverter


The Kostal Plenticore integration allows you to get data from Kostal Plenticore solar inverters and integrate them into your Home Assistant installation. It allows you also to change some of settings values of the inverter.

The integration uses the REST-API interface which is also used by the integrated Web-UI and therefore uses the same password.

Configuration

Adding Kostal Plenticore Solar Inverter to your Home Assistant instance can be done via the user interface, by using this My button:

Manual configuration steps

Sensors

The integration disables most of the sensors per default. You can enable it in the Entity page. The sensors are split into two sets, one for the process data and one for the setting values.

The Plenticore inverter provides much more data endpoints, some of them are also dependent of the version of the firmware. If you are missing process data values, open an issue with the necessary information or make an pull request.

Settings Sensors

The following sensors are available in the library:

Name Unit RW Description
Battery Dynamic Soc RW Dynamic SoC.
Battery min Home Consumption W RW Min. home consumption power for battery.
Battery min Soc % RW Min. SoC of battery.
Battery Smart Control RW Enable smart battery control
Battery Strategy RW Battery strategy.
Shadow Management RW PV string shadow management.
Setting values change less often, therefore these sensors are only polled every 5 minutes.
