This research work presents the data acquisition, monitoring and hence estimating the efficiency of the solar module using LabVIEW. The working of the solar power system can be determined by continuously monitoring the solar panel parameters namely voltage, current and temperature. LabVIEW tool is used to acquire solar cell data through Data Acquisition (DAQ) Card and display voltage, current, the variation of power with voltage and variation current with voltage graphically in real time. The real-time data are collected under different circumstances such as bright day and cloudy day to monitor the proper working of a photovoltaic solar module. The smart solar tracking system is used to moves the solar module and track the sun throughout the day. Results show that the tracking system helps to obtain the maximum efficiency at all times. © BEIESP.
