Objective: The proposed topic is implemented for the development of an automatic computerized solar radiation tracker and using power in home appliances. Other resource of energy are short term, thus solar energy is an emerging new source fuel, that can be applied to any source and it is been widely used. Methods: The aim of this research work is to monitor feasible approachto maximize the efficiency of solar array systems. Proposed in this report is a system that controls the movement of a solar array so that it is constantly aligned towards the direction of the sun and that there is a constant power supply without any hindrance. This is achieved by applying the measurements using Mathematical Morphological Operators. Existing tracking systems focus on directing the sun rays towards the solar panel and it lands up in manual operation. To overcome this problem a computerized system is proposed to enhance the proposed model to have a vital role in tracking the solar system used to get the energy. To find the region or the path in the solar panel morphological operator is applied to have a calculated process. Thus this proposed system helps to locate and redirect the deviated and lost energy rays. Findings: Solar Energy is a vital resource nowadays to operate any kind of appliances. In countries like India solar energy is a big boon as the summer is long and this paves for more solar power. In this abstract development of an automatic computerized solar radiation tracker and using power in home appliances is discussed. Other resource of energy are short term, thus solar energy is an emerging new source fuel, that can be applied to any source and it is been widely used. Solar panels or modules are devices that convert sunlight into electricity and offer a practical solution to the problem of power generation in remote areas. The Proposed Computerized solar tracker designed and constructed offers a reliable and affordable method of aligning a solar module with the sun in order to maximize its energy output. Automatic Sun Tracking System is a combination of both hardware and software (hybrid) hardware prototype, which automatically provides best alignment of solar panels according to the sunrays position, to get maximum output. Application: Thus this system can be implemented to enhance the working technology of the methods available for a better usage of the solar power.
