hi am planning to do a solar tracker as my project,and i would like sum advice on it..can anybody help.
i was thinking of setting up a tracker that follows d moment of d sun rather dan using a RTC to just time the movement of d panel.my design consist of a few LDR's used for sensing the sunlight den a ADC converter just in case and a micro controller which controls the movement of a stepper motor that in turn moves the solar panel according to the movement of the sun.
i searched the net and found a few kts using MPPT.but i wud like to keep my pjt simple.can i use a mc of 8051 family rather dan go behind pic Mc's??if so wat shud be the programming needed and how many sensors can i implement.Am so confused abt all these facts.Can any one guide me through dis.
my email id is firstname.lastname@example.org
do help me out if u have any ideas!!!
