SMA Sensorbox, Surface meteorology and Solar Energy Dataset
The Sunny SensorBox is installed directly onto solar modules and measures irradiation and temperature. In combination with Sunny WebBox and local nework, it provides continuous meteorological and power production data. This makes it possible to detect shade, dirt, and gradually declining array performance, providing security against lost yield. It can be used for measuring and evaluation of global irradiance on a tilted surface in order to have a better and more precise insight on photovoltaic power plant planning and operation. Two additional sensors to measure of ambient temperature or wind speed provide even more data.
