Embedded-Based Smart Solar Grid of 2 × 2 Monitoring System Using Smart Sensors
In this research an embedded-based procedure for automatic fault detection and supervision in 2 × 2 PV array with possible fault allocation by using voltage and current parameter through embedded. The supervision system is developed with LabView which is acting as real-time data logger. The approach has been validated with experimental setup, and the system is designed with low-cost embedded-based solution to provide reliable and secure monitoring of PV system. The system include the parameter extractions technique to calculate main PV system parameter supervision based method analysis the output of voltage and current sensor present in the solar PV array. In the experimental result, fault detection and supervision system has shown the high accuracy of fault detection and fault classification on the test.
