Azimuth-Altitude Dual Axis Solar Tracker Public
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
People in underprivileged countries could benefit from the use of a solar distributed generation system. To provide an efficient solar distributed generation system, a scaled down dual-axis solar tracker was designed, built and tested. At maximum, the solar tracker was perpendicular to the light source by 1.5 degrees. The built system had a calculated annual energy gain of 48.982% compared to an immobile solar panel. Compared to a single axis tracker, the dual-axis tracker had an annual energy gain of 36.504%.
