Review on Advancement in Solar Photovoltaic Monitoring Systems
To enhance the output energy value of photovoltaic cells, the modern monitoring system plays a crucial role. The massive-scale solar energy harvesting is getting momentum due to the advancement of the photovoltaic (PV) monitoring system day by day; however, the cost of solar PV equipment is also an important aspect. The present review aims to assess the impact of the design and development of various smart monitoring systems, and the administration and control of solar PV cells. The description of improvement in performance, monitoring, and maintenance in solar PV plants after inclusion of technology, such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and machine-to-machine (M2M) based technology with IPV6 on low-power wireless personal area network (6LowPAN) Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is elaborately discussed. A review of problems and the permeable solutions in the application of a solar PV cell monitoring system with communication techniques such as computer-to-computer communication (Ethernet), the embedded system to a computer (GSM), and embedded system to embedded system (GSM, GPSM) are discussed elaborately. A survey of revolutionary changes in the area of smart home, smart city, smart environment, and smart enterprise due to the enhancement of solar PV cell latest monitoring systems are also being covered in this review.
