Design of WSN Sensor Node for Solar Photovoltaic Modules


Article Preview

Photovoltaic module is an important part of photovoltaic power generation, so the quality and reliability of Photovoltaic modules directly determine the whole (PV) power system’s stability. Design a JN5139 as control core based on the solar Photovoltaic modules of WSN sensor node. This paper firstly analyzes the sun batteries testing principle, then from two aspects of hardware and software this sensor node in detail, including hardware JN5139 timing acquisition by the output of solar cell piece voltage, current and bypass the diode loop current, judge battery slice of actual work; Software from main program respectively, AD son conversion program, etc are introduced. With the data of experiment collecting, the node is analyzed and evaluated.
