Abstract

This paper discusses the use of a Spherical Ball Lens to converge light at a single point and to use Multi-Junction Solar cells mounted on an Automatic Cradle and Slider to capture solar energy throughout the presence of the Sun in the sky. The Cradle and Slider are mounted on low inertia DC motor drives. These DC servomotors are controlled by the Arduino Microcontroller which uses an array of Photodetectors to track the movement of the Sun. The paper also discusses how multijunction cells could replace conventional Photovoltaic (PV) cells in solar energy generation systems due to higher energy conversion efficiency.
