    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.

    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...

  • Solar Tracking: Dip/Tilt aka Polar Vs Equatorial Mount

    This video reveals how the tracking area covered by a common dip-tilt, aka "polar" tracking mount differs from a true equatorial mount that is capable of accurately tracking the sun across the entire sky. Azimuth-altitude trackers are of course also capable of pointing more-or-less anywhere and thus accurately following the sun as well; however, they are not discussed in this video In mathematical terms, rotating the z axis and then rotating the y axis does not generally point the same direction as rotating the y axis and then the z axis.

  • Simple Solar tracker

    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.

When LDR2 receives more light than LDR1, it offers lower resistance than LDR1, providing a high input to comparators A1 and A2 at pins 4 and 7, respectively. As a result, output pin 1 of comparator A2 goes high to rotate motor M in one direction (say, anti-clockwise) and turn the solar panel. When LDR1 receives more light than LDR2, it offers lower resistance than LDR2, giving a low input to comparators A1 and A2 at pins 4 and 7, respectively. As the voltage at pin 5 of comparator A1 is now higher than the voltage at its pin 4, its output pin 2 goes high. As a result, motor M rotates in the opposite direction (say, clock-wise) and the solar panel turns.
