What is this course about?
Solar Trackers are devices which will automatically orient in the
direction of high intensity sunlight to effectively harness maximum
solar power. In this course, you will develop an Automatic Solar
Tracker using a solar panel, light-dependent resistor (LDR) and DC
Motors based on Arduino platform. When the sun moves, the LDR
sensor senses a reduction in light intensity forcing the DC Motors
to adjust solar panel accordingly in the direction of high
intensity. When compared to a fixed solar panel, this tracking
system produces 40% more energy!
By building this project, you will practically learn about working
of solar energy systems, harnessing of solar energy in a smart way
and Arduino programming. You will also work with photoresistors in
electronic systems and control DC Motors using programming.
- Learn how automatic solar panel tracking works
- Work with photoresistor sensors and DC motors
- Get hands-on experience on Arduino development and programming
- Write programming logic for working of the solar tracker
- Build the solar tracker chassis and assemble sensors, motors,
- Test solar tracker to automatically follow the direction of highest
- Arduino Uno board
- UART cable
- DC Motors
- Motor Driver
- Solar panel model
- Elbow joints
- Connecting wires
- Working tools *
All the above components would be provided during the program to
participants in groups of 5 but would be taken back at the end.
Participants registering in groups of 5 will get take-home kit for
free. Take-home kit consists of all the above items excluding the
items marked with *.
