Project Title RAK360 Smart Solar Tracker
Project Category Innovation
Abstract Optimization of the solar system seems to be one of the biggest challenges to harness maximum solar radiation energy from the sun. The solar system generates and charging the battery based on the quantity of radiation absorbs by the solar panel. Since the amount of sunlight and the shading effect change by the hour, a plan to maximize the amount of sunlight and minimize the shading effects to reduce power loss and increase the electricity generation must be established. The static solar panel may have limitation to allow maximum charging capability and absorb the highest amount of radiation to the solar panel. Besides, charging the solar battery typically requires longer time due to the limitation monitoring the solar system involve a manual mode that not user-friendly and commonly conducted by a manual system that not user-friendly. This product aims to develop a solar system that continuously generates electric for various applications; whist discovers a solar system that reducing the time to generate electricity. The novelty found on this product by the usage of the flexible movement solar panel and a mobile monitoring system of the tracker. The usefulness of this product can be such as the ease of monitoring system (by using mobile application), a shorter time to fully charge the solar battery for specific usage and the optimization the capacity of sunlight absorption of the PV panel due to the flexibility of the panel (up to 40%). For commercialization this product can be used in large and various appliances and industrial specification for the local authority, public and private sectors, as well as for the PV manufacturing company or supplier.
