Abstract

To meet the power demands, an alternative source of energy is essential to produce power. Sun being renewable energy, it is used. Photons from the sun light are incident on the solar panel and LDRs which are fixed near the panel. The solar tracking is done using arduino which is interfaced with LDRs. When the light falls on LDRs the intensity changes, based on the higher intensity side the solar panel is titled with the help of DC motor using relay circuits to move in forward and backward directions. Thus the lead acid battery is charged by the energy from the panel. Furthermore the secondary battery is utilised for loads when the primary battery is drained . By switching operation the bypassing of batteries is done. For monitoring the panel and controlling the batteries the real values from the panel and the batteries are given to arduino and it is interfaced with labview.
