Design and Implementation of Solar Tracking System for Solar Panels

Authors(4) :-Vaibhavdeep Sahare, Ashit Samdur, Neetu Gyanchandani, Rahul Langde

Solar energy is quick turning into significant methods for sustainable power source asset. With solar tracking, it will end up conceivable to create more energy since the solar panel can keep up an opposite profile to the beams of the sun. In this paper, we talk about the structure and development of a prototype for a solar tracking framework that has a solitary pivot of opportunity. Execution and attributes of solar panels are broke down experimentally. The increment in power is significant and accordingly worth the little increment in expense. Support costs are not prone to be high.
