Solar Tracking System

A fully automated solar tracking system for industrial and domestic application was constructed and tested.  The system uses GPS data and an array of sensors to track the sun’s azimuth and inclination angles, and to point a parabolic dish toward the sun. The goal for this project was to position the dish to within 0.25 degrees of the sun’s azimuth and inclination angles, and to keep it within that range continuously throughout a 6 hour period.  This system has applications in the fields of energy collection, solar heating, and astronomical tracking.
