Building an Effective Meteorological Station for Solar PV

Weather station Lufft WS600 at solar PV plant.

Weather conditions have a huge influence on photovoltaic output. Even intermittent cloud cover can have a dramatic effect on incident solar energy, while other factors like air temperature, wind direction and speed, precipitation, humidity and air pressure can all influence the efficiency of solar cells. Monitoring weather conditions accurately is crucial in order to understand […]
