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: https://www.resystech.com/solar-tracking-system 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
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.
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.
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!
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

NEW HomeMade Solar Tracker made from old PC-Laptop parts. To build the mechanical parts I used an old hard disk drive for the base, a laptop display as a mounting surface for the solar panels, motors and cogs that that i removed from an old printer. And the result is this cool and cheap Dual-Axis Solar Tracker with very fast and accurate tracking, with 4 LDR sensors and simple electronic circuit it points the panels to the brightest area and collects the sun's free energy.

This is my solar tracking system also possible to point the mirror at a fixed point, heliostat See heliostaat.nl
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.
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...
In this video, we are finished the construction of the solar tracker we finish the horizontal axis i used a gear system that I have at home. I used a joy stick just to control the axis and i will convert it to automatic tracking. I going to a Mppt solar controller to convert the sun thru the panel. The charge controller takes the unpredictable solar energy and convert it into a constant voltage thus it can be used for any applications.
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 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
