Solar Tracker Design and Build

Solar Energy

Project details

DynaSim has developed and constructed a low cost 4kW dual axis solar tracker

The design has been tailored to suit 10x 400Wp solar panels. With the dual -axis tracking capabilities, the energy production is increased with 30-40% annually.

A parametric design method was setup to scale this type of tracker to any number of panels when needed. Aerodynamic wind loading combined with structural analysis and the right selection of components allowed this tracker to be optimized for the highest energy production and lowest cost

Additionally, the tracking control algorithm has been developed together with the electrical design, resulting in optimal tracking of the sun
