Fuzzy Controller Design using FPGA for Sun Tracking in Solar Array System

By Basil M. Hamed Mohammed S. El-Moghany

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Feb. 2012

The output power produced by high-concentration solar thermal and photovoltaic systems is directly related to the amount of solar energy acquired by the System, and it is therefore necessary to track the sun’s position with a high degree of accuracy. This paper presents sun tracking generating power system designed and implemented in real time. A tracking mechanism composed of photovoltaic module, stepper motor ,sensors, input/output interface and expert FLC implemented on FPGA, that to track the sun and keep the solar cells always face the sun in most of the day time. The proposed sun tracking fuzzy controller has been tested using Matlab/Simulink program; the simulation results verify the effectiveness of the proposed controller and shows an excellent result.
