This paper describes the design and implementation of a single axis sun tracking and protection system. This utilizes LDR's and air-flow sensors to make PV cell facing in the direction of maximum irradiation to promote system efficiency and also aligning them parallel to the direction of harsh winds for panel protection. Meanwhile, the algorithm is implemented such that during normal weather, solar tracking occurs and when comes the harsh winds solar tracking is temporarily be replaced by solar protection system. This paper will first highlight and elaborate the concept.
