IoT Monitoring for PV System Optimization in Hospital Environment Application

Purpose: The objective of this study is to implement IoT monitoring to remotely monitor PV system output and efficiency to ensure the continuous supply to ventilators and monitors in the ICU Room of RSI Siti Khadijah Palembang. Methodology/approach: The approach implemented in this study is by installing IoT Monitoring as an automatic transfer switch to ensure the continuous supply for the load. Results/findings: The IoT monitoring shows the real-time production of PV panels, battery capacity, and inverter output. Hence, the operator can monitor the PV system output and decide whether to keep using sources from PV panels or switch to grid utilities during cloudy/rainy days. Limitations: The IoT monitoring system has supervised the system's reliability, but it is necessary to improve the output and efficiency of the PV system by adding artificial intelligence algorithms and installing active cooling to prevent overheating. Contribution: This study shows the effectiveness of implementing IoT monitoring for the On-Grid PV system installed on the rooftop of RSI Siti Khadijah Palembang.
