PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The main objective of this project is to design a solar energy measurement system for measuring solar cell parameters such as voltage, current, temperature and light intensity through multiple sensors.

The proposed system uses a PIC16F series family microcontroller and a rectified-power supply.  In this project, a solar panel is used to keep a track on monitoring the sunlight.  In this system, number of sensors are connected to the microcontroller with an 8-channel in-built ADC device for monitoring the parameter of the solar panel like voltage, current, temperature and light intensity. A 16x2 LCD display is connected to the microcontroller for displaying the information.

The solar panel is fed to the microcontroller through a potential divider to measure voltage – a small load through which current is measured. The temperature and light intensity is monitored through corresponding sensors. All these parameters are displayed on the 16x2 LCD interfaced to the PIC microcontroller.
