    This is a power generating method from sunlight.This method of power generation is simple and is taken from natural resource. This need only maximum sunlight to generate power. This project helps for power generation by setting the equipment to get maximum sunlight automatically. This system is tracking for maximum intensity of light. When there is decrease in intensity of light , this system automatically changes its direction to get maximum intensity of light.
    Here we are using two sensors in two directions to sense the direction of maximum intensity of light. The difference between the outputs of the sensors is given to the microcontroller unit.
    Here we are using the microcontroller for tracking and generating power from sunlight. It will process the input voltage from the comparison circuit and control the direction in which the motor has to be rotated so that it will receive maximum intensity of light from the sun.
    The power generated from this process is then stored in a lead acid battery and is made to charge an emergency light and is made to glow during night.

    The logic is simple, we use 2 LDR's in the circuit. The program checks the LDR contionusly and if it found one LDR is in dark then the stepper motor is rotated until both LDR gets light. so that both the LDRs will be perpendicular to the sun.

    The LDRs should be placed iinside a small pipe so that the light from the top should fall on it. and we should place a metal plate in between the two LDRs.

    thanx sir ,but i mean to say that i want to study the code
    and i couldnot read it because no file could open it
    i hav understood the circuit
    please tell me the source by which i could read the code
    which software could read it after unzipping

    Open with Notepad,
    The RIDE assembler is used to assemble the source code to hex code, you can download it from www.raisonance.com
