Increasing of Electrical Energy with Solar Tracking System at the Region which Has Turkey’s Most Solar Energy Potential

Musa Yılmaz and Fevzi Kentli
Abstract—In this study, we investigated the efficiency of our own two-axis solar tracking photovoltaic system which designed by us according to a fixed system. The system’s energy consumption was minimized by using tipper motor in the two-axis solar tracking system. Both systems were mounted in the same place to compare two-axis tracking system’s efficiency with fixed system’s efficiency fully and used the same breed panels, charge regulator, measurement device and battery. It was observed that Two-axis motion system efficiency was more than fixed system 31.67% over an annual average. This efficiency was measured on some days up to 70% during the winter months and up to 11% during the summer months.

Index Terms—Solar energy, photovoltaic, two axes sun tracking, Turkey solar energy.
