Description

Abstract :

Sun Tracking System for Solar panel project is made to tracking the Sun at day time for utilizing its solar energy properly for solar panel. The Sun trackers are all-weather, reliable and affordable tracking and positioning instruments. This project orients the Solar Panel toward the sun, so that it can utilize with higher accuracy. Our Sun Tracker system track the Sun by use of sensors and rotate the solar panel by means of stepper motor.

For flat-panel applications, trackers are used to minimize the angle of incidence between the incoming light and a solar panel. This increases the amount of energy produced from a fixed amount of installed power generating capacity. The optics in concentrated solar applications accepts the direct component of sunlight light and therefore must be oriented appropriately to collect energy. Tracking systems are found in all concentrator applications because such systems do not produce energy unless oriented closely toward the sun.

Basic concept

Basically, Sunlight has two components, the “direct beam” that carries about 90% of the solar energy, and the “diffuse sunlight” that carries the remainder – the diffuse portion is the blue sky on a clear day and increases as a proportion on cloudy days. As the majority of the energy is in the direct beam, maximizing collection requires the sun to be visible to the panels as long as possible. The energy contributed by the direct beam drops off with the cosine of the angle between the incoming light and the panel. In addition, the reflectance (averaged across all polarizations) is approximately constant for angles of incidence up to around 50°, beyond which reflectance degrades rapidly.

Even though a fixed flat-panel can be set to collect a high proportion of available noon-time energy, significant power is also available in the early mornings and late afternoons when the misalignment with a fixed panel becomes excessive to collect a reasonable proportion of the available energy. For example, even when the Sun is only 10° above the horizon the available energy can already be around half the noon-time energy levels (or even greater depending on latitude, season, and atmospheric conditions).

Thus the primary benefit of a tracking system is to collect solar energy for the longest period of the day, and with the most accurate alignment as the Sun’s position shifts with the seasons.

    which microcontroller is used in the kit ?

    • IQBAL SINGH

      8051 micro controller, for other controller you have to contact us for change

  4. Gilbert Oluoch

    i’m doing the same project in Kenya,please can you provide me with detailed info on components used and specifications….

  5. rashi

    can i get the detailed information on this project and what all things i may get if i order the project kit of “sun tracking solar panel”

    • IQBAL SINGH

      In project we will provide the printed and etched PCB along with all the components to complete this. And the softcopy of file report which has intro, block diagram, circuit diagram and details information of components etc.

  6. ANANTHU

    WHAT ARE THINGS WILL PRESENT IN 6200 RUPEE PACK. IS THE CUIRCUIT DIAGRAM IS PRESENT WITH THE PACK FOR CHECKING THE PROJECT I BREAD BOARD

    • IQBAL SINGH

      Yes, we provide soft copy of file report which have block diagram, circuit diagram, components list and details etc.

  7. Chinmay Raorane

    we are doing final B.E. project on sun tracking solar panel.can we use atmega8 and L293 driver IC.so can you change project as per our requirement .how to contact you for detailed information about project and for buying it?

    • IQBAL SINGH

      Contact us @ +91 8955512356

  8. yadavsanplA

    CAN IT BE PERFORMED WITHOUT THE MICROCONTROLLER

    • IQBAL SINGH

      yes there is but there another circuit for that

  9. Kishan jani

    I want Arduino Uno microcontroller is it possible ? I want it before 5 may 2018 can you please help?

    • IQBAL SINGH

      yes. Please contact for any modified project at
