Design of a Solar Tracker System for PV Power Plants

  title={Design of a Solar Tracker System for PV Power Plants},
  author={Tiberiu Tudorache and Liviu Kreindler},
This paper deals with the design and execution of a solar tracker system dedicated to the PV conversion panels. The proposed single axis solar tracker device ensures the optimization of the conversion of solar energy into electricity by properly orienting the PV panel in accordance with the real position of the sun. The operation of the experimental model of the device is based on a DC motor intelligently controlled by a dedicated drive unit that moves a mini PV panel according to the signals…
