The auxiliary power supply converts the electricity used for air conditioning, interior lighting, displays, etc. The static inverter is installed to provide power that has low voltage and consistent frequency even when there is a propulsive inverter. There may be a need for an auxiliary power supply for various equipment, such as monitoring, SCADA, safety, lighting, air conditioning, etc, in the case of large solar power systems.
To increase their effectiveness and commercial viability, photovoltaic systems are always being improved. One development is the use of long strings of cells, which provide higher DC voltages that can be used to generate AC voltage for the grid. Auxiliary power supply for monitoring and control must accept these higher voltages as inputs in order to avoid incurring additional costs.

What is the Role of PV Power Generation Monitoring System?
The PV power generation monitoring system keeps track of the PV power generation components as well as the grid-connected inverters and auxiliary AC/DC devices in the PV power generation system. It also evaluates the grid’s connectivity conditions as well as the quantity, quality, and quality of the power generated. This makes it possible to control the power generation and functioning of the PV power-producing system.
The PV power generation monitoring system keeps track of the devices’ operational state in real time and alerts the user via an audio and visual alarm when a device generates an abnormal signal.
