- This report describes an automated solar tracking system which is adaptable to most solar collectors which require alignment with the sun's radiation. The system uses partially shaded photovoltaic solar cells to produce error signals for both elevation and azimuth tracking with a high degree of accuracy. An electrical circuit processes the error signals and controls gearmotors to direct the solar collector toward the sun.
