Wireless internet of things solutions for efficient photovoltaic system monitoring via WiFi networks

Himri Yacine, Kadri Boufeldja


The imperative for sustainable energy production has necessitated the significant expansion of renewable energy sources, particularly photovoltaic (PV) systems. The utilization of real-time monitoring and data analysis is imperative to enhance the efficiency and performance of photovoltaic systems. This abstract presents developing and deploying a wireless monitoring system for a photovoltaic system. The system utilizes a Raspberry Pi device connected to a WiFi network and an SD card for data storage to enable remote monitoring and management of PV systems. The proposed monitoring system comprises a Raspberry Pi equipped with sensors to measure various parameters such as voltage, current, temperature, and the ambient conditions of the solar panels; the monitoring system can be remotely accessible through the wireless capabilities of the Raspberry Pi, which are activated by establishing a connection to an existing WiFi network. The proposed configuration facilitates the placement of the monitoring station in any desired location, hence eliminating the requirement for intricate wiring connections. These real-time data enable solar system managers to quickly identify anomalies, anticipate breakdowns, and optimise energy production. The paper presents a wireless monitoring system with a cost-effective and scalable solution for monitoring photovoltaic systems.
