Designing and constructing a self-sustaining portable solar energy collector with a mounted tracking device
Solar tracking is a very interesting and exciting field    . The concept of tracking the sun's disk mimics the very nature of the sunflower. The sunflower's nature is to follow the sun's movement throughout the day. The primary purpose of this thesis is to build a solar tracker that is portable and easy to use. The sensors used to detect the sun's movement consist of four ligHTM emitting diodes and a microcontroller. The use of a microcontroller will complicate things less, since they are very cheap and relatively easy to obtain and program. The second purpose is to give SGU students inspiration to delve more into solar energy. Indonesia is a nation rich in sunligHTM  and it is a pity if Indonesian students do not have source of inspirations. The second purpose is as important as the first purpose, because it gives students hope and vision for the future of solar energy. The problem for the thesis is mainly focused on measuring the power gained by this prototype.
