Passive Solar Panel Tracking


This is a video of the panels I will be using at the UF biodiesel plant. The solar panel arrays in the Solar Energy Park use a passive tracking system which allows for the panels to increase efficiency about 20%.

    The main problem with this system is that on a cloudy day it will not work. This is the one major flaw of the passive tracking system. The sun is required to make the passive tracking system work.
