Renewable Energy: Single-Axis Tracker

NMSU Professor Thomas Jenkins shows an example of a larger, more sophisticated, solar array system with a single-axis motorized tracker and discusses the potential applications. This system is equipped with a computer that knows the movement of the sun relative to location and time of year. It controls the motor so that the solar panels are adjusted every few minutes to receive the maximum amount of direct sunlight throughout the day.
