As people’s demand for renewable energy continues to grow, solar energy has become a clean energy option that has attracted much attention. In order to achieve optimal solar power generation efficiency and system sustainability, solar energy monitoring systems have emerged.
Solar energy is a widely available renewable energy source, however the performance of solar power generation systems is often affected by many factors, such as weather conditions, shading and component failure. The introduction of solar monitoring systems aims to monitor and analyze key data in the solar power generation process in real time, thereby providing insights into system performance and providing decision support to operators and maintenance personnel.
Solar monitoring systems usually consist of multiple sensors and monitoring devices used to collect data in solar power generation systems. These sensors can measure parameters such as solar radiation intensity, temperature, current and voltage. The collected data is transmitted via wired or wireless means to a centralized data processing unit, where it is analyzed and interpreted to generate reports on system performance and health. These reports can be provided to operators, maintenance personnel and managers to help them make decisions and take appropriate actions.
