Abstract

Solar energy is one of the potential renewable energy which is also gaining popularity in recent years. The proposed small scale sun tracking solar power plant is a combination of mechanical design of structure and control system that maximizes solar energy accumulation by means of photovoltaic cells during real-time sun tracking. This project aims to overcome a few disadvantages of traditional solar photovoltaic systems with a new model. The new model consists of smaller modules, each having a few cells. The modules are constructed with solar cells sandwiched in between a transparent plastic layer on top and a heatsink at the bottom for sufficient cooling. Then, the modules are mounted onto a frame in V shape, consisting of two panels to allow for more heat dissipation and lower air resistance. The mechanical base supporting system for the panels has a linear motor which allows the panels to rotate in a single axis about the vertex of the V shaped frame. To confirm the feasibility of the developed system, performance analysis has been added at the end of this paper.
