Washing Machine

PV data plot

During this sunny day, I ran the refrigerator for much of the day (low resolution 15-minute sampling), but also ran the washing machine off of the PV system. For this, I switched to high-resolution (1 minute) sampling. The activity is seen just before noon, and consists of two stages: the wash stage and the rinse/spin stage. These are separated by the time it took to re-fill the tub with water for the rinse. The spin stage actually consumed less power than the agitation, as seen by the trailing nature of the second spike. The sun was also used to line-dry the clothes: solar laundry!
