This paper proposes an intelligent model of a solar panel tracking system for improving its efficiency in power generation. Maximum efficiency depends on maximum solar radiation on the panel. The solar panel is attached to a stepper motor for moving the panel direction according to the sun’s radiation. The sun radiation intensity is measured by a light detector circuit. An Intelligent controller is developed using fuzzy logic controller to send command signal to the motor for movement of solar panel direction. The system is fully automatic and adopts changes in atmosphere.
