Automatic changing of tilt angle of solar panels |Single Axis Solar Tracker with linear actuator
Hello! I’m beginner on this forum. I’m from Russia. I haven’t got a PV system yet, but I’m really interested of solar power. While I was calculating settings of my future system, I thought about the tilt angle of solar panels. I want to arrange my solar array on the rooftop for a start. I understood that the best tilt angles of summer and of winter differ. I decided that the automatic changing of the tilt angle is a good idea.
invented the following facility: there is a platform (solar panel)
where solar modules are located. The lower edge of this platform is
based on the rooftop, the higher edge is based on the linear
actuators which will change the tilt angle of the solar panel.
I’m going to use the Arduino microcontroller, a simple single axis solar tracker and 12DC actuators for setting more efficient tilt angle of solar panels.
beginner I need your advice and help. What do you think about my
idea? Is the automatic changing of the tilt angle of solar panels
really good idea? Is this efficiently?
If I’m right, that it’s really good idea, estimate and comment the proposed facility. Is it rational, cheap and efficient? Share your experience if you have!
