ChgThrottle: Protect Charger¶
Throttle charge current / stop charge if charger gets too hot
Version 1.2 by Michael Balzer <email@example.com>
The plugin monitors the charger temperature. It can reduce the charge current or stop a running charge process if the charger temperature exceeds on of three defined thresholds.
- Add line to
chgthrottle = require("lib/chgthrottle");
Param Instance Description Default usr chgthrottle.enabled yes = enable throttling yes usr chgthrottle.t1.temp temperature threshold 1 50 usr chgthrottle.t1.amps charge current at threshold 1 25 usr chgthrottle.t2.temp threshold 2 55 usr chgthrottle.t2.amps current 2 15 usr chgthrottle.t3.temp threshold 3 60 usr chgthrottle.t3.amps current 3 -1
Set t1…3 to ascending temperature thresholds. Below t1.temp, the current is set to unlimited.
Set temp to empty/0 to disable the level.
Set amps to -1 to stop the charge at that level.
Simply configure as desired, the plugin will monitor the charger temperature automatically and react as configured.
config set usr chgthrottle.enabled no to disable the plugin,
… yes to enable again.
State changes are logged and sent as notifications. Use
info() to show the current state:
script eval chgthrottle.info()
Notifications are sent initially, then only on level-up during charge, and only on level-down while not charging.
