The main goal of this project is to achieve the maximum solar panel or photovoltaic cell power production. The Sun's Direction is, in general, from East to West but the location of the Sun varies from season to season. Holding this in mind, we have constructed a device that rotates in three dimensions to capture as many photons as possible from the Sun rays as possible. The photovoltaic panel turns solar energy (photons) into electricity. Through doing so the system's performance efficiency is improved relative to the fixed mounted system's efficiency. PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) controls the overall project, and linear actuator-controlled rotation of the panels.
