Abstract

This paper presents the concept and operating
principles of a flexible real-time long-term monitoring system for
photovoltaic (PV) plants. Compared to traditional solutions
which require dedicated hardware and/or specific data logging
systems, the monitoring system we propose allows the user to
monitor the grid-connected PV system using commercial of the
shelf hardware devices and software programs such as LabVIEW
and Weather Link software. The proposed system is built around
wired/wireless devices and internet of things (IoT) concept. It
provides customizable fast, reliable and secure monitoring tool
suitable for deployment in PV systems management. The gridconnected
PV monitoring system (GCPV-MS) is developed and
installed at the University of Huddersfield, United Kingdom. The
results obtained from this project indicate how IoT concept can
be utilized in remote PV monitoring systems.
