ABSTRACT
This paper deals with the design and execution of a solar tracker systemdedicated to the PV conversion panels. The proposed single axis solar tracker deviceensures the optimization of the conversion of solar energy into electricity by properlyorienting the PV panel in accordance with the real position of the sun. The operation of theexperimental model of the device is based on a DC motor intelligently controlled by adedicated drive unit that moves a mini PV panel according to the signals received from twosimple but efficient light sensors. The performance and characteristics of the solar trackerare experimentally analyzed.
