Using proactively monitoring Solar Panel Monitoring System for their functioning and addressing faults, we can retrieve efficient power output against faulty solar panels, connections, dust gathered on panels lowering output, and other such issues affecting solar performance.
Faststream Technologies offers an automated IOT-based solar panel monitoring/troubleshooting system that allows for automated solar panel monitoring from anywhere over the internet. As part of our solution, we make use of several IoT gateways suitable for different needs, based on SoCs like STM32, ESP32, unbox, CC3200, and Silicon Labs to monitor the solar panel parameters. Our system constantly monitors the solar panel and transmits various parameters to the Cloud over the IoT system. Here we make use of the IoT platform to transmit solar power parameters to Amazon/ Azure cloud /IOT server via a gateway (over Wi-Fi and Ethernet). A powerful web interface allows the viewing of data in meaningful formats, enabling users to make decisions. The alerts originated from Panel come to the rescue in tackling situations like output falling below specific limits or some sort of malfunctioning. This makes remote monitoring/handling of solar plants very seamless and intuitive, addressing faults within the stipulated time.
We also have Alerts and a monitoring interface on Android/iPhone for distributed Solar Panel Monitoring systems (SPMS). This method utilizes the Bluetooth interface of Android/iPhone as a communication link for data exchange with the digital hardware of the Solar Unit.
Introduction to an instant monitoring solar panel system that is constituted with a sensor on current and voltage measurements of each panel source. The related values are measured with the developed sensing circuits and processed by the 18F4450 microcontroller of the Microchip. The processed parameters are then transmitted to the personal computer (PC) over MODBUS to be saved in the database and to observe the system instantly. The Coded visual interface of monitoring software can manage the saved data to analyze daily, weekly and monthly values of each measurement separately.
