Self Powered Solar Tracking System

at 3:49 pm. Filed under Electronic Hacks


To be efficient solar panels should track the sun. This Self Powered Solar Tracking System by ahmadbakri13 of the Palestine Polytechnic University looks to work very well. There is not much details about it though. Hopefully the creator can share a bit more about the inner workings. It is probably similar to other solar tracking systems that we have featured here before though.

"2 DOF solar tracker based on micro controller and small solar cells as sensors, linear actuators and solar system of panel and battery and charge controller where the battery is the source of power of the linear jacks"

    Reminds me of a really cool and simple solar tracker made out of LEGO I saw on Jose Pino’s blog. It only has one axis of tracking, but for LEGO, no sensors, and the ability to automatically reset to face east every day, I’d say that’s pretty good. http://www.josepino.com/?simple_sun_tracker

    I am always skeptical of two axis solar trackers. The second axis adds very little extra alignment and just allows you to gain an extra 10-20% irradiance at mid day . I doubt the minor power gain would offset the added research costs, not to mention maintinance and material costs for that device especially in remote areas. If it is not in a remote area you would be better off removing the second axis and adjusting the tilt angle once every season.

    Solid information, many thanks to the writer. It is puzzling to me now, but in general, the usefulness and significance is irresistible. Very much thanks again and goodluck!

    Well done Ahmad. I’ve only been tinkering in the shed with
    building a device for tracking the sun. I was very inspired
    when I saw your video.

    I hope to see more innovation from you in the furture.

    Best regards,
    -Amateur Solar Student
