Abstract

Solar tracker in photo voltaic (PV) conversion technology becomes one of the most important factors in harvesting renewable energy. The development of this technology improved the efficiency of PV. This paper aimed to control PV position which is perpendicular to the direction of solar radiation. The solar altitude and azimuth angle were approached with pitch and yaw angle of solar tracker motor using model predictive control in Simulink package in Matlab. Results showed that the error value between solar tracker motor angle and solar angle is not significant.
