The conversion of solar energy to electrical power is anything but uniform under varying weather conditions. To monitor several key system parameters, RainWise, a professional grade meteorological equipment manufacturer designed the PVmet Solar Energy Efficiency Monitor specifically for the photovoltaic (PV) industry. The unit can continuously measure key solar panel performance indicators such as ambient temperature, solar irradiance, plane-of-array irradiance, back-of-module temperature and wind speed and direction. This information allows accurate performance modeling, fault detection, and maintenance scheduling of solar equipment. The monitor is offered in three different models: entry (PVmet 100), intermediate (PVmet 200) and utility level (PVmet 300).
