Abstract

Sun is a very abundant source of power. Even so, only a fraction of the entire energy is harnessed and that too not efficiently. The main cause of this is the high cost of installation of solar cells. Also solar cells are mostly kept fixed, so they do not obtain the optimum amount of sunlight throughout the day. This paper aims at the development of a simple process to track the sun and attain maximum efficiency using Microcontroller and LabVIEW for real time monitoring.
