Energy is necessary for development whether social, economic or even military. The production of energy by photovoltaic systems is very variable that depends enormously on the climatic conditions. That is why it will be necessary to think to store this energy to reuse it during night and days "without sun". Adding the storage element that makes it easier to use later. In this work, an experimental study on the test and the monitoring of the photovoltaic field will be presented with a storage system in the Sahara in the south of Algeria, namely electrochemical storage using storage batteries
