Abstract: Earth receives 84 Terawatts of power and world consume about 12 Terawatts of power per day. We are trying to consume more energy from the sun. Thus, the tracking of the sun’s location and positioning of the solar panel are important. The goal of this project is to design an automatic tracking system, which can find location / position of the sun. The tracking system will move the solar panel so that it is positioned perpendicular to the sun for maximum energy conversion at all time. Photo resistor will be used as sensors in this system. The system will consists of light sensing system, micro controller, gear motor system, and a solar panel. The Sun illuminates the earth every day by irradiating an enormous amount of energy of which a majority is lost or not utilized because of the unscientific placement of solar panels. Thus, tracking the location of the sun and the position of the panel is of huge importance in this project.
