  Simple Tracking Solar Cell 

  Simple Tracking Solar Cell 
Global warming has increased the demand and request for green energy produced by renewable sources such as solar power. Consequently, solar tracking is increasingly being applied as a sustainable power generating solution.

About this device :
Is a device for orienting a solar panel or concentrating a solar reflector or lens towards the sun. Commentators, especially in solar cell applications, require a high degree of accuracy to ensure that the concentrated sunlight is directed precisely to the powered device. Precise tracking of the sun is achieved through systems with single or dual axis tracking. In this project i will print the degree of tracking and the value of the measured power  which gave from the solar cell on the LCD Screen too.


Components :
1- Arduino uno
four LDRs
3- Solar cell panel
4- Moving body has dual axis tracking
5- Inverter  
6- Lcd screen 
7- Two stepper  motors

8-Limit switches
10-Resistors (10K, 1K, 100Ω, 800Ω)
11-Schottky diodes
12-Transistor BC547C
13-Capacitor (220pF, 1nf)
