Title

Solar Panel Characterization

Format

SOECS Senior Project Demonstration

Abstract/Artist Statement

The purpose of the solar panel characterization system is to find the power output of a solar panel at a given location, and characterize that location in terms of its power output. The power output is found by measuring the panel voltage and current. After the data is measured and interpreted, the data is sent wirelessly to a computer to log and record data and position of the system. The entire system will be running off the power produced by the panel. This system will help determine the amount of power that you can expect to collect at a particular site to best harness the sun’s energy with any solar panel implementation.
