The most important measurement parameter is irradiation. Since PV systems are becoming ever larger, the accuracy of the irradiation measurement is increasingly important for the efficiency of the system. Wind cools the temperature of the module and must therefore be included in the efficiency calculation. Precipitation leads to contamination or covering (snow). With increasing temperature, the performance of the solar module decreases. Therefore, it is important to measure the temperature of the solar module in addition to the air temperature.
