Abstract

This paper shows a research for enhancing the rays of sunlight towards solar panels by designing the Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) that works on the solar tracking control system. The mechanism of whole design keeps the solar panel in horizontal rotation in order to get maximum energy from the sun during the day. The mechanical assemble of prototype solar cell is manufactured to change the position of panel from 180 degree East to West. Also we used the electronic circuit, which has quality for sensing the sunlight as well as controlling the servo motor. The tracking system is operated by using the software Altera Quartus-II. The process is gone through the programming and loaded into Altera DE2 FPGA board and tested successfully in the laboratory. This system has more energy concentration and has more improvement factor rather than using fixed solar panel system.
