In this paper a System for the automatic positioning of the heliostats of the Solar Power Tower plant is presented a clod detection system and a sun position algorithm will compute the exact position of the Sun, and the clouds will be detected next to the sun in order to preserve the integrity of the power tower's system. The main purpose of this system is to achieve a maximum efficiency. Change the positions of the heliostat to away from the sun, when the clouds are about to cover the sun. In
