Paper Title:
Optimum Seeking Position Control of Solar Collectors
  Abstract

The main hindrance to the widespread of solar systems is the cost of the solar collectors. Researchers all over the world have been exploring different means of overcoming this limitation in order to make solar conversion more cost effective. This paper describes an experimental work on optimum seeking position of solar collectors using feedback control theory. Single axis tracking mode is employed together with sun seek sensor for automatic reset. The performance of the tracking collector compares favorably against a fixed collector.
