Photovoltaic monitoring is a vital part for the implementation and optimization of solar energy as an electricity source. Today’s PV monitoring systems are constructed from costly tools and complex designs. This thesis project discusses the design of a basic and cost efficient PV weather monitoring system. The design consists of hardware processed via a microcontroller, a low powered computer and a software designed database program, Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio Express. The stored measurements can be viewed on LabVIEW, MS Access and MS Excel.
