Content: Energy represents a basic drive for the economic and social development of a country. However, the remote areas, where lack of infrastructure, have no access to electricity because the utility grid extension is not a cost-effective option and sometimes technically not feasible. Therefore, the autonomous PV diesel hybrid system power supply is used to supply electricity instead of utility grid in rural areas.

When the hybrid system is used, in order to keep the hybrid system working reliably, it is necessary to include a monitoring system. The aim of a monitoring system is to collect the monitored data from a remote station to a master station.

The interactive monitoring website proposed in the thesis is comprised of a monitor unit, a data acquisition unit, and a communication unit. The operators can access the monitored data via a standard web browser. The communication link is based on the GSM technology over a TCP/IP network.

The interactive monitoring website allows the operator to download the monitored data and upload operation parameters to system components directly via the website.
