This video describes how I built my tracking drive system and details the automatic tracking of the sun. My system is a 10kW solar system in installed myself.
In this video I build an affordable DIY solar tracking system for PV panels. A step by step build guide & 3D CAD for this project are available at the link below: www.resystech.com/solar-tracking-system.html Link to single axis tracking kit: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Single-Axis-Solar-Tracking-Tracker-8-Linear-Actuator-Controller-for-Sun-Track-/282677766095?hash=item41d0e867cf:g:tW0AAOSw44BYP9eN Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/RenewableSystemsTechnology
See how to make your own home-made solar tracker. It's easy and effective. No special electronics or programming needed. Great for use with a solar panel system or a maintenance-free solar oven. Here is a link for the wiring diagram for the solar cells and 12VDC motor: https://youtu.be/vvZ4DnvYhXo Here is a link to a kit that includes the motor, solar cells and turntable: http://www.ebay.com/itm/-/272385153619? Here is a link to just the motor: http://www.ebay.com/itm/-/331972060730? Here is a link to just the solar cells used in this tracker: http://www.ebay.com/itm/-/271090629958?
This is an automatic single axis solar tracker. Here LDR is used for sensing the sun light direction. The LDR voltage is sensed by microcontroller and it sends signals to motor driver circuit to rotate the solar panel to the direction of sun light.
How can photovoltaic (solar electric) panels be made cost-effective today? Get 40% more energy from each panel, and reduce system cost by 20% or more!
Very simple solar tracking Device that I came up with, its vary simple and cheap to make. I came up with this idea after playing with hobby servo . Its possible to feed the servo with solar panel attach to is. You don't need any microcontroller to track the sun with this device. By the whey I recorded this video with cannon HV20 . Click on the 1080p resolution .

This is a brilliant simple idea for a homemade solar tracking model using a few easily available components and minimal assembly at almost no cost. It makes sense by powering itself and without using electronics or sensors. Presented here as a sixth grade instruction and explanation set for a science project with clear animations and scientific explanations of the physical principles with diagrams behind the workings of the model that were readily understandable and motivating to young students. The video ends with food for thought to encourage creativity and problem solving with more diagrams and animations of how to scale up the model into a low cost practical do-it-yourself device to produce alternative energy. This also inspired indirect student interest in producing this video as a t...
No electronics needed. Follows the sun to the west, then moves to the east in the morning. The solar panel angle cuts down the power generated when looking toward the sun, while also allowing the position reset in the morning. This tracker uses no electronics, just the 2 ea. 5 volt 160 mA solar panels and 1 ea. 6 volt gear motors 500 mA, see http://www.ebay.com/itm/DC-6V-37GB-100RPM-High-Torque-Gear-Box-Electric-Motor-500mA-37MM-4kg-cm-0-5A-/171643089674 (the torque spec is wrong, more like 0.4kg-cm) Each panel is hooked to the motor oppositely than the other panel, the result being the panel with the most power moves the motor.
Our SINGLE AXIS SOLAR TRACKER solution is a simple structure that is made from hot dip galvanized steel and can be easily assembled with light construction equipment. Our actuation system provides a powerful, reliable and noise-free movement capable to work on the worst weather conditions with very low energy consumption and almost free of maintenance. The number of beams that mount the panels can be modified to get the most reliable configuration and allows different final lengths to obtain the maximum available soil performance.
Let's get rid of the computer (and the need to add states every time we add a new solar panel - annoying!), and use the new logic boards to configure our solar panels to track the sun (and it tracks the sun better!)
This is a dual axis tracking system that I build for a rural community that was sponsored by the good people of USA thank you This system pumps water for them via solar power I used an normal truck hub and one gear motor 24V DC gear ratio 1:575 that is link via chain as seen in video (West - East ) And a linear actuator also 24V Dc with a push force of 6000N (North-South ) 6 panels of 230W for a normal 3 phase 0.75Kw bore hole pump at 60M 1500L/h
last year BE mechanical project on automatic solar tracking system with glass as reflector for parabolic trough collector
http://www.windynation.com/ This is a short video showing our Suntura Solar Tracker. The Suntura Solar Tracker is a dual axis solar tracker which follows the sun from sunrise to sunset. By following the sun, the Suntura Solar Tracker can increase solar panel efficiency by up to 40%. Order yours today at www.windynation.com

My first project using a Arduino UNO to control my solar tracker. This solar tracker could easily be modified to be a two axis tracker. The tracker uses time to track the position of the sun during the day. I have found using time instead of a light sensor is a more reliable and easier way to track the sun.
