The main goal of this project is to develop and implement a prototype of two-axis
solar tracking system based on a microcontroller. The parabolic reflector or parabolic
dish is constructed around two feed diameter to capture the sun’s energy. The focus of
the parabolic reflector is theoretically calculated down to an infinitesimally small
point to get extremely high temperature. This two axis auto tracking system has also
been constructed using microcontroller. The assembly programming language is used
to interface the microcontroller with two-axis solar tracking system.
at the focus of the parabolic reflector is measured with temperature probes. This autotracking
system is controlled with two motors. The five light sensors are used to track
the sun and to start the operation (Day/Night operation). Time elays are used for
stepping the motor and reaching the original position of the reflector. The two-axis
solar tracking system is constructed with both hardware and software
implementations. The designs of the gear and the parabolic reflector are carefully
considered and precisely calculated.
