Photovoltaic Lighting System with Intelligent Control based on ZigBee and Arduino

Ruben Nogales Portero, Alberto Rios

Abstract


In this article, the design and implementation of an innovative photovoltaic system prototype intelligent control lighting based on Arduino and ZigBee described. The prototype design is based on international experiences associated with public lighting systems on motorways. In addition, the lighting system is connected to a power generation system composed of isolated photovoltaic cells. The lighting control system is subject to a vehicle detection permitting variation of the light intensity when vehicles circulating on the highway. The variation of the light intensity and control of the lighting system is managed through an Arduino microcontroller which in turn transmits information wirelessly to other luminaires distributed along the highway. Thus, it is expected that the lighting system present a significant savings in energy consumption by making use of innovative technologies.
