Our Automatic Dual Axis Sun Tracker with PV Panel is aimed at the educational market. This product is suitable for demonstrations to students at schools from the elementary to the university level. At present, the main sources of renewable energy training are websites and printed materials, which are theoretical and not ‘hands-on’. Our bench-scale product, which makes possible a live demonstration by an instructor with the direct participation of students, trains students in solar tracking, solar energy capture, and conversion of solar energy into electrical and mechanical energy, and pv training . Our hands-on product lets students benefit from direct interaction with solar technology. The apparatus can be used in manual mode (appears fixed, like in most homes) and then switched to automatic mode with the tracker. The user can simultaneously measure the voltage and current out of the panel with a multimeter and monitor how it changes with time. They can then compare that result with a panel without a tracker (i.e. a fixed panel). This is suitable for ages 12+ with parental supervision. Can be used outdoors, but must keep away from any precipitation.
