The world is running out of the oil and natural resources with each passing day. Most of the electricity around the world is generated using natural resources. E-governments are trying to move the electricity production from natural resources to hydro and solar generation. For the places such as in the Middle East and deserted areas in Sindh district of Pakistan, where water resources are low and solar is superlative for generating electrical energy. The objective of this research is to implement, model, design and simulate the Photovoltaic Solar Monitoring (PVSM) systems. The simulation for the system is implemented on LabVIEW software and tests are carried out for certain values of input. All the details, expected outcomes, problems, and results are part of this research.

The scope of this research is to obtain the results using real-time simulations performed in LabVIEW. The simulation performed in LabVIEW mimics the implementation of the advanced automation and control system technique Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA). The objective of this research work is to perform the essential simulation that is required to investigate current products for PV factors monitoring that influence solar panels efficiency. The goals are: to design and to develop a system for monitoring the PV solar systems using LabVIEW, to simulate the performance of PV solar system using the theoretical methods, to monitor system by means of LabVIEW and to show theoretical effects in the method of the curve of PV performance parameters. Implementing the interfacing technique at home level to monitor the local solar parameters helps in utilizing the solar generated energy in an efficient way. Analysis in LabVIEW helps in studying the parametric condition of the environment where solar is required to be installed.
