Abstract

In this project we explain about solar tracking system using a combination of micro-controller, DC motor and light dependent resistors (LDR’s) with the primary aim of improving the power efficiency of the solar panels. The main component of this tracker is PIC16F72 micro-controller which is programmed to detect the sunlight with the help of LDRs and then actuate the DC motor to position the solar panel in such a way so that it gets the maximum sunlight. Thus, this system can achieve maximum illumination and can reduce the cost of electricity generation by requiring minimum number of solar panels with proper orientation with the sunlight. This work is an application development done in college project.

Key Words

Power Optimization, Solar Panel, LDR’s, DC Motor, PIC 16F72 Microcontroller.
