We have our own Solar measuring station at Faculty of Engineering, and it was donated by Sri Lanka Sustainable Energy Authority (SLSEA).
In order to engage in renewable energy research, Data such as solar irradiation, wind speed, humidity, temperature are required. Our Solar measuring station data logger captures device voltage, temperature, wind speed, wind direction, humidity, hygro/ thermo temperature, barometer air pressure, pyranometer-diffused solar irradiance and global solar irradiance. These captured are used by students and staffs for their research. Mr. Sangar has been assigned to monitor the progress of rooftop solar PV plant.
The following graphs were generated using captured sensor data.
Wind speed variation
Relative humidity variation
Solar irradiance variation
