In this project, the purpose of solar monitoring data at UTP is to act as a stepping stone
for other related projects in utilizing the energy from the sun (solar energy). Although the
original intention of this project is to monitor the solar data at UTP, equipment setups at
USM and UKM (auto-monitoring system) were used since it uses more accurate
equipments. Besides that, experimental data from Metrological Department were also
analyzed for verification and comparison purposes.The scope of study includes literature
review, data collecting process (using equipments setup) and data analysis. For the
methodology section, the procedures involved are data collection process (using three
equipment setups); and data analysis. There are tables regarding values of solar radiation
and other parameters such as temperature, relative humidity and wind speed in the result
section, followed by discussion to analyze the readings taken. In the last section, the
readings from all the sources are compared and the solar radiation patterns are also
concluded. Recommendation was made based on the conclusion. Upon completing this
Final Year Project, the student able to appreciate the importance of solar data monitoring
in utilizing solar energy as an alternative energy source.
