That is a truly great effort there Nick.
Its now just a case of tuning up the software

Belgium is going to be just a little bit different to Australia!  
Probably the biggest issue will be how many cloudy days in a row you are likely going to strike in winter. There is no substitute for local climate experience.

That is going to be the killer, and when the sun stays away for several days in a row, more panels or a larger battery are just not going to help. I believe a battery charging generator of some type is going to be a necessity at some times, even if its not very often.

Until you have experienced at least one winter, its not going to be really possible to estimate your typical consumption or solar input with shorter days and longer nights.
