Real-Time Data Acquisition to Excel and Monitoring Characteristics of Solar Panel Using Arduino
Keywords:PV panel, Voltage, Current, Power, PLX-DAQ Spreadsheet, Serial connectivity, Arduino
This research presents a low-cost virtual instrumentation method for real-time PV panel monitoring of voltage, current, power, and temperature. The system is built around an inexpensive Arduino acquisition board. The data is presented in Excel using the PLX-DAQ data collection Macro, and the acquisition is done with a low-cost current and voltage sensor. The current and voltage sensors are used to determine the PV current and voltage. The output of the two sensors is then sent to the Arduino UNO board's microprocessor. The data collected throughout the acquisition process is recorded and plotted in real time in an Excel sheet. As a result, the I–V and P–V characteristics, which are processed in real-time, can be instantly acquired and plotted on an Excel sheet.
