One year ago, I began building my own solar system to provide power for my village house.Initially I made a LM317 based charge controller and an Energy meter for monitoring the system.Finally I made PWM charge controller.In April-2014 I posted my PWM solar charge controller designs on the web,it became very popular. Lots of people all over the world have built their own. So many students have made it for their college project by taking help from me.I got several mails every day from people with questions regarding hardware and software modification for different rated solar panel and battery. A very large percentage of the emails are regarding the modification of charge controller for a 12Volt solar system.

I belong to a village of Odisha, India where frequent power cut is very common. It hampers the life of every one. During my childhood days continuing studies after dusk was a real challenge. Due to this problem I designed a solar system for my home on a experimental basis. I used a solar panel of 10 Watt ,6V for lighting few bright LEDs. After facing lot of hardships the project was successful. Then I decided to monitor the voltage, current, power & energy involved in the system. This brought the idea of designing an ENERGY METER.I used ARDUINO as the heart of this project because it is very easy to write code in its IDE and there are huge numbers of open source library available in the internet which can be used according to the requirement.I have experimented the project for very small rated (10Watt) solar system but this can be easily modified to use for higher rating system.

ArdaSol is the project name for my solar energy and Arduino based monitoring system. This description shows how the system is built and how it works. The energy production of a photovoltaic plant is monitored and also the consumption or feeding to grid of the energy. Data acquisition during a solar day and publishing on the internet is also a function of this system.

wp08_solar-cricketLearn how to use solar panels for both battery charging and for sensing when light has dropped below a certain threshold. Learn how to use an Arduino Micro for power management, and combine these two skills into an exciting classic "cricket" noisemaker that only turns on when the sun has faded into the night.
