Solar energy is one of the renewable energies on which nowadays scientists interested in energy sources are focused. A problem that appears is their output which is intermittent and therefore storage, careful control and parameter monitoring are required. This paper presents a workstation conceived for the study of photovoltaic solar energy. Besides of generated photovoltaic solar energy parameters study, the monitoring using virtual instrumentation is implemented. As a platform for virtual instrumentation National Instrumentspsila LabWindows / CVI environment is used. For future developments remote communication feature is added on which currently remote monitoring of solar photovoltaic energy and electric energy parameters at consumer side are monitored. Remote communication is proposed to be realized on ethernet network by DataSocket technology for regular wired and wireless network accessibility.
Date of Conference: 1-4 Sept. 2008
