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 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.
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?
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!
In this video I build an affordable DIY solar tracking system for PV panels.

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
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 .
I have 3 solar panels there 240w each , tracking the sun by 2 axes ( N-S and E-W ), each panels has his own micro inverter for maximum of efficiency , the actuators i choose to power them not from a battery but from a 12v 8A regulated power supply , and those 2 small boxes on the frame are the enclosures for sensors . Hope it is helpful for those who want to try this in order to reduce their electric bill; is not a big system , only 720w rated ( but i've seen even 780w ) but is designated to supply power just how much i need to use for most of regular appliances in the house , i mean tv , 2-3 computers , fridges , cause these things are working all day , every day , if you can supliment this consumption and not pay for it then your gold has been achieved .I started this from 0 ,most o...
This is a video of the panels I used for the University of Florida biodiesel plant The solar panel arrays in the Solar Energy Park use a passive tracking system which allows for the panels to increase efficiency about 20%. Eric Layton, part of the UF Biodiesel plant, used the solar panels to help power the facility.

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.

Read all about my DIY Solar Tracker build - http://www.binaryorbit.org Here is the X Axis of my Solar Tracker. Using Linear Actuator. Here is a video demonstrating the x-axis. I'm powering it with an 18 Volt drill battery, which makes it move way too fast. I reckon I'll probably put 5 Volt to it when done.

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

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...
