Intelligent Solar Tracker Using Concentrated Photovoltaics And Fuzzy Logic
A solar tracking generating power system is designed and implemented. An expert controller, sensors and
input/output interface are integrated with a tracking mechanism to increase the energy generation efficiency of solar cells. In
order to track the sun, cadmium sulphide light sensitive resistors are used. To achieve optimal solar tracking, a fuzzy
algorithm is developed. A field programmable gate array is applied to design the controller such that the solar cells always
face the sun in most of the day time.
