Anuja Borkar, Sunil Surve . Comparison of a Developed Dual Axis Solar Tracking System based on Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) and Astronomical Equations with Existing Systems. Communications on Applied Electronics. 4, 9 ( April 2016), 18-21. DOI=10.5120/cae2016652165
A novel, low cost solar tracker based on Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) and astronomical equation is designed and implemented. Simulated results of the system predict an increase in efficiency compared to other tracking solar panels. Experimental testing also shows an excellent agreement with the available models. In addition, further improvements to the design are critically evaluated in terms of complexity and benefit.
