Real-time online monitoring the working status of the photovoltaic array and warning potential faults will play a crucial role in the safe operation of the photovoltaic power generation system. This paper presents a hardware system which is based on Wi-Fi failure prevention system of photovoltaic arrays. The collected data from each collecting node are transmitted to the STM32 chip to process and analysis. The system achieves the data transmission between the upper computer and the lower computer through the Wi-Fi technology and accomplish the real-time monitoring the working status of the photovoltaic array by the upper computer. The test results show that the system is not only stable but also reliable and it can monitor the working environment and status of the photovoltaic array in real time accurately.
