Shockinglybad’s proposal for solar generation for class project
The use of the solar panels at the moment could be optimized. This can be achieved by increasing production and the development of a sun positioning system. By the use of actuators to get better full sun time hours on the panels. Will mean more production as the panels are energized more of the time. This could include a LDR sensing device to make the operation automated and reduce the risk of operator error.
This will be accomplished by fixing the panels to the roof. With one side hinged and the other with an actuator mounting to move and change the angle of the panels. The use of a LDR to detect when light is low at roof level it can operate the actuators to increase angle and sun influence on the panels.
