title Sistema de seguimiento solar de bajo costo para instalaciones fotovoltaicas domésticas [Low-cost solar tracking system for domestic photovoltaic installations]

summary The ongoing research is focused on the development of a low-cost solar tracking system to improve domestic fixed PV installations which performance is dramatically diminished due to the absence of reorientation mechanisms to maximize solar energy capture. A straightforward way to reduce fabrication and maintenance costs of a domestic solar tracking system is to avoid the use of photoresistors. Most solar trackers use photoresistors to reorient their PV panels. However, the daily and seasonal solar path is well known and its variation is negligible when comparing photoresistorbased and preprogrammed reorientation against the amount of solar energy that is captured.
