They are still processing my request (it takes time),
in the meantime I have an idea. Suppose that each
ups voltage measurement could have some measurement
error. It could be used to correct some minor measurement
errors for any ups, but also could be used in the cyberpower
Let's introduce a calibration polynomial like
Ucalibrated = c0 + c1 * U + c2 * U^2 + ... cn * U^n
This will allow practically any type of conversion
including high-order nonlinearities.
in the config file we enter first n coefficients of the
polynomial, the rest c are considered as zero.
In cyberpower case it is c0 = 0, c1 = 1/1.53
Ucalibrated = 0 + 0.6536 * U
and this would be defined as ups.conf like
voltage.calibration = 0 0.6535
So everybody can calibrate his own ups battery measurement
make the polynomial fit and just enter the coefficients in
ups.conf or just use recommended values for some models
that are know to have systematic error
what do you say?
Best regards, Davor
