This system is the simulation project for the geo satellite to track the maximum signal strength for which the position of the solar panel has to be changed.So in this project we are using solar sensor to track the maximum solar signal strength to which the solar panel rotates automatically at certain position .when ever the signal strength decreases or the user needs to scan the system it can be done by the scan button provided in the instrument. The solar panel, which is provided with the solar sensor, is rotated through the stepper motor control systems in horizontal direction. This whole system is controlled totally by pic micro controller.
Modules involved in this project are
- power supply unit-.
- Sensor module-.
- stepper motor-
- driving ckt for steeper motor-
- ckt for the signal conditioning of the solar sensor-
- flash controller unit for the sensor module (including burning the chip)
- flash controller unit for the stepper motor (including burning the chip)
