Abstract

The European Solar Test Installation developed the ESTI-sensor, a low-cost solar irradiance measuring device which in a short time period has become a well known device for monitoring and evaluation of photovoltaic (PV) installation and a new standard for PV power plant monitoring systems. To further lower the cost of a monitoring system, and to increase performances, ESTI proposed a lowest-cost system, where all necessary electronics are laminated within the sensor.
