IOT Based Solar Power Monitoring System

Solar is renewable source, demand of electricity is increased day by day. Solar energy is trough out the year and solar power plants need to be monitored for optimum power output

This helps efficient power output from the power plants while monitoring for faulty solar panels, connections, and dust accumulated on panels lowering output and issues affecting solar panel performance

Here an automated IOT based solar power monitoring system that allows for automated solar power monitoring from anywhere over the internet.

Project Description:

  1. Arduino: The digital and analog input/output pins equipped in this board can be interfaced to various expansion boards and other circuits. The Serial communication interface is a feature in this board, including USB which will be used to load the programs from computer
  2. Solar Panel: Solar panel or Photovoltaic cell is an electrical device that converts the energy of light directly into electricity by the photovoltaic effect, which is a physical and chemical phenomenon
  3. It is a form of photoelectric cell, defined as a device whose electrical characteristic, such as current, voltage, or resistance, vary when exposed to light. Individual solar cell devices can be combined known as solar panels

  4. ESP8266: ESP8266 Wifi module is generally used to establish the wireless communication between the devices. But this module is not capable of 5-3v logic shifting and will require an external logic converter
  5. Thingspeak: Thingspeak channel is researched based platform used to update the data on the channel and even can be download on the mobile application to monitor the current status of the application via the internet is connected
