  • Parameters

Meteorological conditions are important information in Air Quality Monitoring Sy-stems and Networks. As the fate of air pollutants is influenced by the movements and characteristics of the air mass into which they are emitted, no air quality data is com-plete without an accurate in situ record of meteorological conditions. Atmospheric dy-namics determine the formation, transport, deposition and dilution of the pollutant. Primary meteorological variables for AQM applications include Wind Speed, Wind Di-rection, Air Temperature and Relative Humidity, Atmospheric pressure, Radiation and Rain. The turbulence index of the atmosphere typically refers to the atmospheric stabil-ity which is an important information to analyse the deposition and dilution of the pol-lutant over a certain area. Characterization of atmospheric stability for dispersion mod-elling purposes involves measurements of temperature, radiation intensity and wind speed.

SOLAR ENERGY - Monitoring equipment

  • Parameters

For an operating Photovoltaic Plant, the main exogenous limitation to optimal performance is represented by the environmental conditions and by soiling presence on the PV module surfaces. The main environmental parameters as solar radiation, the basic feedstock of the system, and temperatures, influence performances of the plant, and less-heralded factors such as wind speed, wind direction, rainfall, concur to generate the environmental conditions determining the potential expected plant yield against which actual plant performances are measured. For this reason monitoring of the environmental characteristics of the site and, on the other hand, of the PV module itself, can give parameters to calculate the efficiency of the power plant. The key variables to be monitored are: global irradiance, air temperature and module temperature, diffuse irradiance. Also wind speed, wind direction, rain and storm distance are key factors in the field of risk prevention during extreme events.

Weather monitoring: what is it for? Meteorological measures have multiple uses that make them of primary importance for monitoring areas, of different sizes, and for managing extreme situations, such as floods, exceptional snowfalls, strong winds or harmful solar radiation. Professional weather stations are used to monitor the parameters that are the basis of the complex algorithms of forecasting models. Long time series of reliable and quality weather data make a valuable contribution to climate change research both locally and at the mesoscale. What is a weather station made of? A weather station is typically composed by a series of sensors for the measurement of the various parameters: solar radiation, wind direction and speed, air temperature and humidity, precipitation, atmospheric pressure and others. All the data are stored in a data logger, which has the task of archiving them, processing the first calculated quantities, and managing the communication of the data to a web-based software or to a traditional server. The weather station is installed on one or more physical structures such as poles and towers depending on the place of installation. There are some clear prescriptions from W.M.O. (World Meteorological Organization) on the proper installation of the weather stations, to obtain quality data that are representative of the climatic zone. The continuous operation of all equipment is guaranteed by the power supply, either from the power grid or solar panels. In this last case, the size of the panel is calculated based on the number of sensors, the rate of data acquisition and transmission and the availability of solar radiation (latitude, frequent or long-lasting cloud cover). The station is completed by the data transmission system, via modem, radio or more rarely via cable.
