How do I get a solar tracker without Arduino?

  1. Step 1: LDR Module. The Digital LDR Module is used to detect the presence of light / measuring the intensity of light.
  2. Step 2: L293D Motor Driver Module. Motor Driver – L293D Driver Module is a medium power motor driver perfect for driving DC Motors and Stepper Motors.
  3. Step 3: Circuit Diagram.
  4. Step 4: OUTPUT VIDEO.

What is the use of microcontroller in solar tracking system?

An 8051 microcontroller was used to control the movement of the solar panel. The system was designed to be autonomous, such that energy generated by the solar panel would be used to charge two lead acid batteries.

How do I make a single-axis solar tracker?

Here are the step took in the build process of our custom Portable Single-Axis Solar Tracker.

  1. Calculate the lengths needed for optimum tilt.
  2. Gather all components needed.
  3. Attach brackets to solar panel by drilling holes and fastening with appropriate bolts.
  4. Cut copper and PVC pipes to length.

How does a single axis solar tracker work?

A single-axis solar tracking system uses a tilted PV panel mount and one electric motor to move the panel on an approximate trajectory relative to the Sun’s position. The rotation axis can be horizontal, vertical, or oblique.

What is the difference between single axis and dual axes solar trackers?

Solar trackers are of two types, single and dual axis trackers. Single axis trackers track in a singular way i.e. follows the Sun’s East-West or North-South movement, while Dual axis tracking has two degrees of freedom.
