Solar PV Tracker System for Traffic Light Application
Keywords:Photovoltaic, Solar Tracker, Traffic Light System
Solar energy is becoming more essential, particularly in rural areas. However, the conventional photovoltaic cell conversion efficiency is limited. This project will develop a solar PV traffic signal tracker. This study's objective is to track the sun's position. The project has two parts: software and hardware. The device used four light-dependent resistors (LDR) to detect sunlight intensity. The two 180° servo motors are used to move the panel towards the sun. In Proteus, the solar tracker and traffic light system are designed. It was compared to a static solar panel. Finally, the system has shown its potential to gather maximum sunlight.
