Original Abstract

We need to measure both electric and non-electric quantities solving the series of problems in power engineering. Graphical programming environment of the program LabVIEW seems to be useful helper and provides good tool for measuring both an automatic independent measurements of specific tasks, using measuring cards and instruments. The LabVIEW belongs to widely used measuring tools at Department of Electrical Power Engineering, Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Communication power engineering, Brno University of Technology. Since the LabVIEW is used to solve a number of projects at our department and there is only limited space in this article, we decided to mention only the most interesting ones. The first project deals with measuring operating characteristics of the photovoltaic cell. It consists of standard interconnection of measuring devices (producer Metex), which measure data that are transferred by program LabVIEW to the computer. Next, the data are mathematically and graphically processed. Different projects in LabVIEW offer a wide spectrum of front panels in the framework of this program allowing to connect each measuring device by its specific way. Some of them are listed here. Another of the many tasks developed at our department is an autonomous measurement of electric and non-electric quantities of photovoltaic and wind power installation. A specific part of this project included the connection of meteorological station VIASALA which required a particular set of control interfaces created by LabVIEW. The LabVIEW environment has also created a comprehensive measurement system for detection of resistance of modern light sources to interference in the voltage supply, as well as a system to test and develop devices to measure the flickering of light sources. The system is implemented on the PXI platform.
