Design of solar tracking system to enhance energy extraction
Vishaka Ambardar, Tanvi Mehta
This paper presents the design of a solar tracking system driven by an arduino. The system is based on two, search mechanism (PILOT) which locates the position of the sun and second mechanism (intelligent PANELS) aligns itself with the PILOT only if maximum energy possible could be extracted. On top of that the main advantage of the technique is that the rotation only takes place, if the energy obtained in the new position is higher than that consumed by the panels during the transition.
