I'm building a solar power station control and data acquisition system and have been looking at several software possibilities for computer control platforms.
I need data acquisition, storage, display, linear actuator control, position graphing from calculation and sensor readings manipulation software.
Ideally, I would be able to acquire voltage/current data from each panel in an array and graph the data over time. I will store the data over a longer period time and upload periodically. I want to calculate and determine by sensor readings, the sun's position and do an illustration or positional diagram/graph of the data.. I would also like to monitor battery data over time and calculate and graph state-of-charge data as well as cumulative energy usage.
What this boils down to, I suppose, is data collection, data storage on the Pi, data graphing capabilities and an interface to a drawing library.
Do Cayenne capabilities include all this now or perhaps in the future?
