Abstract: The energy demand of country is increases with respect to the growth and development. Along with this energy generation should be eco-friendly and from the renewable energy sources. Solar energy plays an important role as a primary source of energy, especially for rural area. This project aims at the development and explain the process of track the sun and attain maximum efficiency using Arduino Uno for real time monitoring. There are different methods for tracking system but this paper focuses on single axis solar tracker as it has advantages of simple design, easy to operate, less cost, less maintenance and good efficiency. This system consists of three subsystem 1) mechanical system- platform for tracking system 2) electrical system- PV system, stepper motor 3) control system-Arduino, LDR, motor drive. The performance of the system has been tested and compared with static solar panel. This project describes the design of a low cost, solar tracking system.
