The main building of the UdK Berlin now has a solar plant (photovoltaic) mounted on the roof. It’s equipped with a monitoring system: a Sunny WebBox made by SMA Solar Technology. This box offers browser-based access to the realtime data and a RPC system (remote preocedure calls). Although documentation exists, it was not easy to implement the RPC in python. The documentation is not complete, I had to analyse the implementations of other tools to made my software working.

Finally here it is: SunnyWebBox – a python module to communicate with a Sunny WebBox

At this time there’s no documentation for my module. The development of this module will be driven by my needs and public demand – if there’s any. The project is hosted on github.
