This exciting project centers on the supply and installation of five cutting-edge meteorological stations at a 50MWac Solar Farm in Sg. Petani, Kedah.


These meteorological stations are equipped with top-tier technology, including Campbell Scientific's CR350 Datalogger, CS241DM Back of Module Temperature Sensor, EKO MS-80S Pyranometers, and Gill Instrument's GMX600 Compact Weather Station


Integration of Visibility, Dust & Cloud Cover Sensor

Main Station

This project also involved integrating visibility, dust, and cloud cover sensors at a solar farm can provide valuable data for optimizing operations and maintenance. Here’s an overview of how each sensor can contribute:

Visibility Sensor:

  • Purpose: Measures the clarity of the atmosphere, which can be influenced by factors like fog, smoke, and rain.
  • Benefit: Helps in predicting and managing periods of reduced solar power generation due to poor visibility. It can also assist in safety protocols for maintenance activities.

Dust Sensor:

  • Purpose: Detects the concentration of dust particles in the air.
  • Benefit: Dust accumulation on solar panels can significantly reduce efficiency. Real-time dust monitoring can trigger cleaning schedules to maintain optimal performance.

Cloud Cover Sensor:

  • Purpose: Measures the amount of cloud cover, providing data on solar radiation levels.
  • Benefit: Helps in forecasting solar power generation and managing energy storage. Cloud cover data is crucial for predicting short-term and long-term energy output.
