Solar energy is rapidly gaining notoriety as an important means of expanding renewable energy resources. As such, it is vital that those in engineering fields understand the technologies associated with this area. Our project will include the design and construction of a microcontroller-based solar panel tracking system. Solar tracking allows more energy to be produced because the solar array is able to remain aligned to the sun. This system builds upon topics learned courses of Renewable Energy, Power Management and Micro controllers. A working system will ultimately be demonstrated to validate the design. Problems and possible improvements will also be presented.
