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.
