Abstract

This article proposes an integrated system for monitoring and analysis of the operation of a small photovoltaic plant with the possibility of remote access via the Internet. The system has been built on the territory of Varna Technical University and is based on a mini computer Raspberry Pi 3B + using a Linux operating system. The monitoring is performed by keeping track of the environmental parameters and the input-output parameters of the photovoltaic inverter. Data are presented for a period of three months: October 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020. The results are visualized by appropriate graphs, demonstrating the change in the observed indicators, both for the entire specified period and for a randomly selected day.
