Estimation of satellite‐derived regional photovoltaic power generation using a satellite‐estimated solar radiation data

Abstract A large number of photovoltaic (PV) power systems have been adopted in Japan after a feed‐in tariff was introduced in 2012. However, PV power generation data from residential rooftop and/or ground‐mounted PV systems, and larger MW‐size PV plants have not been measured accurately in real‐time. This is because PV power monitoring instruments (eg, smart meters) have not collected a

A simple and low‐cost active dual‐axis solar tracker

Abstract This paper presents the design and practical implementation of a simple active dual‐axis solar tracker (DAST) to track the sun’s movement by using fewer components and low‐cost as well. A dual‐axis mechanism is developed in order to tilt the PV panel by two servo motors facing the highest intensity of sunlight captured by LDR sensors, which are placed in
