The development of a wireless remote monitoring system for renewable energy production and storage will serve as a cost effective measure for evaluation purposes. The system will serve as a tool to foresee whether off-grid solar power systems, grid-connected systems and hybrid systems monitoring are worth the investment.
As part of the research undertaken by the Intelligent Systems and Advanced Telecommunications (ISAT) research group, the project will serve to monitor a solar system and its battery bank. This is necessary, since all solar energy from a photovoltaic system has to be stored in a battery/battery bank in order to prove useful.
Undertakers of the project will learn to enable a sensor network, gather data from the network,...
store the data, process and distribute it for administration.
The aim of the project and the services it is intended to deliver are as follows:
