Energy Monitoring

Creating a Solar Irradiance Logging System Using NI LabVIEW, DAQ, and WSN

"We designed and developed the Solar Irradiance Logging System by integrating NI LabVIEW with NI WSN devices. The system provides a feasible alternative for solar irradiance measurement devices, and we can use the data acquired and logged for analysis and other applications. The system is beneficial for evaluation of solar systems and solar potential of a specific location."
