Using photovoltaic panels to produce electricity is one of modern solutions to replace energy production based on fossil fuels. Photovoltaic panels with modern energy storage systems can ensure energy independence of individual houses. In order to improve the power output from the solar photovoltaic panels modules, a sun tracking system is generally implemented. Such sun tracking systems use sensors that track sun rays falling from the sun on the solar photovoltaic panels. These sensors allow

In this paper it is proposed a control system for a dual axis sun tracker used to automatic or remote position control of the photovoltaic panels. Automatic or manual control together a efficiency test system for photovoltaic panels and a system for monitoring meteorological parameters makes this system to be very useful in any testing laborator of methods for produce energy from renewable sources. The proposed system will be able to test advantages and disadvantages of the mobile and fixed solar tracker system.
