Optimized Design of Sun Position Detection Sensor
With the object of optical sensor detects the position of the sun, the working principle of the sun position detection system based on four photosensitive devices was analyzed.The sensitive part of this type of sensors was analyzed with optimization. Silicon photocells were selected as optical elements . The main factors and interactions between them which affect the accuracy of the sensor were analyzed using the idea of orthogonal experiment and related software , the optimal combination for the size of the sensor structure was got.
