Photovoltaic Energy Harvesting System with Light Tracing Sensors
Over the last years, solar energy has become of great interest regarding new solutions of energy harvesting, especially when it comes to the global warming topic. Hence, photovoltaic cells have gained a lot of popularity and have grabbed the attention of multiple industries that are looking to expand their energy harvesting applications, whether it means powering up certain systems or storing the energy for later usage. This paper describes a possibility of maximizing the solar energy harvesting capability of a photovoltaic system, employing light sensors for maximum power point tracking, and adjusting the position of the photovoltaic panels. Even though the efficiency of this technology is able to sustain the power consumption on a large scale, improvement methods are always researched.
