Abstract

The global energy crisis is currently the most pressing issue. Renewable energy resources are being prioritized in today’s world to decreases the need on conventional resources. Solar energy is gaining popularity as a means of increasing renewable energy adoption in a variety of fields. Solar panels which convert sun’s energy into electrical energy are inefficient and costly. Solar tracking systems are the most appropriate technology to increase the efficiency of solar cells by tracking the sun rays. Furthermore, solar panels are typically installed in dusty environments. The dust collects on the panel, obstructing the sun’s incident light. It indirectly reduces the power generation capacity of the panel. In this project, a prototype of microcontroller-based sun tracking solar panel with cleaning system has been fabricated.
