A Prototype solar tracking system design and implementation


In this work comparison between the results of the first systems is a fixed solar and the second is the sun tracking in an attempt to increase the proportion of electricity production. Here a microcontroller (Arduino) and the light-dependent resistor (LDR) photo detector is used in this tracker. And then compare the results in different weather conditions and on different days to test the efficiency of the two systems. The efficiency of the tracking system is better than the fixed system by 12.3% on a sunny day and 4.9% on a partly cloudy day. However, it failed by 3.3% on a cloudy day. With a sunny day preference in the tracking system at 6.9% of partially cloudy days, and 12.1% with partially cloudy to a cloudy day. And verified from The efficiency of the work of the microcontroller (Arduino) system and the optical detector (LDR).DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.31257/2018/JKP/2020/120105
