Remote monitoring of solar photovoltaic panel using gsm and iot

In this paper, a method for remote monitoring and analysing of
photovoltaic panels using IoT is illustrated. Photovoltaic panel is a
device which converts light energy into electricity. The proposed
design is used for remote monitoring based on current, voltage,
temperatue and humidity measurement and alerting at the time of
fault. The transmission among the photovoltaic panels and server is
performed by IoT Internet of Things.The current, voltage, temperature
and humidity data are processed by Microcontroller unit MCU .The
measured data are transferred to hosting server using wireless
Transmission. At first, the light energy from photovoltaic cell is
converted into electricity power. Then measuring the current,
temperature, humidity and voltage using sensors. The value of current,
temperature, humidity and voltage are monitored and sent to the Iot
Module, then the Iot module stores the data.This system is more time
efficient than existing methods for remote monitoring system for
photovoltaic panels and it sends a message to user via sms at the time
of abnormality fault in the system.
Solar energy is clean, abundant and an easily harnessed form of
energy. Solar energy, although unreliable, is becoming more and more
popular with advancement in technology and decreasing cost. With
modern monitoring and control systems, these are becoming
increasingly reliable sources of energy and in some years, might even
replace conventional sources completely. Power generated from Solar
PV installations is susceptible to changes due to changes in solar
irradiance, temperature, weather conditions and many other factors.
Monitoring of such installations is hence essential.

Abstract

In this paper, a method for remote monitoring and analysing of photovoltaic panels using IoT is illustrated. Photovoltaic panel is a device which converts light energy into electricity. The proposed design is used for remote monitoring based on current, voltage, temperatue and humidity measurement and alerting at the time of fault. The transmission among the photovoltaic panels and server is performed by IoT Internet of Things.The current, voltage, temperature and humidity data are processed by Microcontroller unit MCU .The measured data are transferred to hosting server using wireless Transmission. At first, the light energy from photovoltaic cell is converted into electricity power. Then measuring the current, temperature, humidity and voltage using sensors. The value of current, temperature, humidity and voltage are monitored and sent to the Iot Module, then the Iot module stores the data.This system is more time efficient than existing methods for remote monitoring system for photovoltaic panels and it sends a message to user via sms at the time of abnormality fault in the system.
