Abstract

In this work we propose an innovative system for tracking the sun which is based on the use of a web cam as the sensor element. A practical electro-mechanism was designed and developed to evaluate its accuracy and centroid angle in tracking the sun under different sun position conditions. The impact on the system performance caused by intermittent cloud cover and temperature changes were also analyzed. The system showed a centroid of the sun and high immunity to temperature variations. It established to be able to track the sun, as well as extrapolate its location in day time sun. The aim of this paper is to make a prototype of a counting sun frames tracking system video based by using the MATLAB-Simulink programming tool. And then try to measure its accuracy. And finally, conclude in which situations this system is more reliable and therefore find its advantages and drawbacks.
