Meteorology measurement system is a necessary system to observe the effect of atmospheric parameters such as solar radiation, air temperature, humidity and wind that affect the power generation performance and efficiency of Photovoltaic (PV) panels. These meteorological data measured at the location chosen for the PV panel installation can give many ideas about the operation of the PV panels to be used, and can direct the selection of the PV panel technology. It can also give ideas to increase efficiency. The PV panel selected without making the necessary measurements with the meteorology measurement system may result in failure to achieve the targeted power generation in the medium and long term. For this reason, a measurement system that can make the necessary meteorological measurements on location basis is important. In this study, a meteorology and PV panel temperature measurement system that can be used in the performance analysis of PV panels has been developed. This developed measuring system offers a cost-effective, easy-to-install alternative solution for performance analysis of PV panels. In addition, the weekly average data obtained through the measurement system developed with this study were analyzed with graphs created over the 6- month measurement period in total. According to the results, the six-month average air temperature is 7.88°C and the average PV panel temperatures are 9.06°C in Ankara city. In addition, the six-month average wind speed is found to be 2.93 m/s.
