Design and Implementation on a Novel of Solar Double-Direction Tracking-Device
The development of solar energy tracking technology has important practical significance for promoting solar energy application. In the paper, double-direction tracking-device was designed based on the theory of calendar check tracking and worm gear mechanism, gear transmission mechanism, cam push-rod mechanism was used to achieve the function of “single driving, double-direction tracking” . So, the function of tracking solar azimuth and solar altitude angles was cleverly realized through controlling a single power. In the paper, design and manufacture of the device were completed by Solidworks software. Through the debugging experiment, the device’s advantages were proved of low energy consumption, high reliability, strong anti-interference ability, easy maintenance and suitable for a variety of small solar installations.
