The objectives of this project are to measure and monitor the performance of the 4.8 kW grid-connected PV systems and 1 kW wind energy system. It can measure monitor and display the real time data including wind turbine voltage, current and power, PV array voltage, current and power, grid voltage, current, power and energy, solar irradiance, wind speed and wind direction, ambient temperature and cell temperature and relative humidity. It is the PC-based monitor system; it can display data and make the reports as tables and graphs. The user could monitor by the local area network. Then the monitor software was developed by LabVIEW. The systems hardware consisted of weather station, sensors, and converter devices, controlling and interfacing devices.
