Solar Monitoring System
Regardless of the size of the solar power plants, they can achieve their real efficiency with accurate planning. The type of cable, construction, inverter and photovoltaic panel to be used in this planning should be determined according to the field conditions. Once the correct parts have been assembled, it is necessary to see and watch the operation of the system in real-time to avoid possible failures and even major problems. Solar monitoring systems allow you to do this.
Monitoring system is a software system that allows you to see information about the performance, production values, consumption and errors of your photovoltaic system. The installation of monitor system is important for monitoring the condition of the solar system, but also for checking that the system is working properly.
How does solar monitoring work?
Solar monitoring system works with solar inverter. A software that comes with inverters can monitor the process status.
When solar inverter turns AC power to DC power, it sends the data about system power level and energy production to a cloud-based tracking system. And this tracking system sends information to the software. Solar monitoring can be checked with smartphones, smart home systems, and computers, etc.
Benefits of Solar Monitoring System
One of another benefit of solar monitoring system is allowing you to see the system malfunctions or possibly solar panel failures. On the other hand, software solar monitor keeps the data inside of memory and create an archive. A person, who want to check the system’s staus, can see all information and compare these. Weather forecasts impacts include this.
As a result, although monitoring system might increase the installation costs, however it’s very important for system stability check. Because it shows your energy production, solar panel situations and avoid the big system failures and protect you against big repair costs.
