Solar Tracking System with DC to DC converter

MAKERS: M. Waqas Ayub

Solar tracking allows more energy to be produced because the solar array is able to remain aligned to the sun. Maximizing power output from a solar system is desirable to increase efficiency. In order to maximize power output from the solar panels, one needs to keep the panels aligned with the sun. As such, a means of tracking the sun is required. This is a far more cost effective solution than purchasing additional solar panels. It has been estimated that the yield from solar panels can be increased by 30 to 60 percent by utilizing a tracking system instead of a stationary array . This project develops an automatic tracking system which will keep the solar panels aligned with the sun and DC-DC converter in order to maximize efficiency of these panels.
