The solar panels' efficiency can be improved by identifying various ways to follow the sun's position, a work comprised of the discovery of numerous methods of tracking the sun, as well as analysis. The challenge is to build a system that increases electricity generation by at least 35 and no more than 45. The control circuit is done using the microcontroller. Once the control circuit has determined the orientation of the solar panel, it next places the motor in order to achieve this best position. The project was created to help combat the difficulty of finding affordable, accurate, and powerefficient microcontroller-based tracking systems that fit inside an allotted time and budget. It is expected to automatically track the sun's position in the sky during the day and to greatly reduce the amount of power that is used throughout the night. An algorithm has been implemented to solve the motor control and it has been programmed into C on Arduino IDE.
