The features of this solar tracker are:

  • Solar tracking: making sure the solar panels are aligned to the sun as long as possible.
  • Energy monitor: This measures the voltage and the current generated by the panels and calculates the generated Power and Energy.
  • Data logging: this sends the data from the energy monitor into the cloud of ThingSpeak.
  • Also there is an LCD to display the values of the energy monitor
  • In this instructable are technical drawings of the project included. And at step 10 there is a link to the complete project report and presentation.

    Check out the full build photos and read about the process here on Instructables.

    And if you’re ready for a bit more intel on the project you can see some presentation Slides by the maker here on Google Docs.
