Abstract


In this paper, solar energy based power plant is operated from a centralized location. From this location, signal is
sent to various tracking machines having solar panels mounted on them to track the Sun from 6 A.M. to 6 P.M. This
tracking is based on spin rate of the earth, which is not based on local atmospheric conditions; in our case, the
tracking is based on global conditions (earth motions around the Sun). This process is different from normally used
photo-sensor based tracking. The tracking machine is designed such that the torque of the motor is minimum due to
mass balancing effect. This process is different from other tracking processes where each machine operates
independent of each other. In this case likelihood of the occurrence of fault becomes many fold. The maintenance of
such plants is very laborious and inefficient.
