Konstruktion av självjusterande plattform för solpaneler (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this project is to create a self-aligning platform for solar panels for better utilization of the renewable solar energy source that is available. The difference between present self-aligning solutions and the proposed one is its two repositioning modes to find the optimal position which implies higher efficiency in terms of harnessing the solar energy. The movement is based on two axes rotation. The objective is to compare the final prototype with a stationary support structure, which will demonstrate an improved efficiency with the self-aligning platform. The achieved results demonstrate a slight improvement in efficiency. This report has the purpose to explain how the construction work during the project has been done and, at the same time, the result of a Bachelor’s degree project in Mechatronics at The Royal Institute of Technology.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med detta projekt är att skapa en självjusterande plattform för solpaneler som bättre utnyttjar den förnyelsebara solenergi som finns tillgänglig. Skillnaden mot nuvarande självjusterande lösningar är dess två positioneringsfaser för att finna den optimala positioneringen vilket resulterar i en högre verkningsgrad. Positioneringen är baserad på två axlig rotation. Avsikten är att jämföra den slutgiltiga prototypen med en stationär konstruktion vilket kommer att påvisa en ökad effektivitet med den självjusterande konstruktionen. Resultatet som har uppnåtts demonstrerar en marginell förbättring i verkningsgrad. Den här rapporten har som avsikt att avhandla hur konstruktionsarbetet har utförts under projektetarbetet och är på samma gång resultatet av ett kandidatexamensarbete inom mekatronik vid Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan.
