Implementation of hardware and software of solar panel testing parameters
MetadataShow full item record
The use of photovoltaic cells and renewable energy has increased over the years and has gained much popularity in recent times. Due to its extended use and dependency, it has become necessary to ensure the quality and functions of the solar panels. In this regard, solar simulator plays a vital role in testing the solar panels. We can test the solar panels, needed for renewable energy, using solar simulator. As a follow-through to this, the need for a solar panel testing facility has emerged. In this project, we have focused on a computer automated system by developing software so that the required outputs can be directly accumulated in the computer. This will then be used to manipulate and control the system with the software from the computer. As a partial task of the whole project we will testing different parameters of solar panels of different Wattage ratings and hence come to a conclusion after a comparative study, regarding the efficiency, desired voltages, current and other parameters, through the software, for the panels to be used for the project.
