MPPT solar charger with arduino

Update 27-02-2016: I have stopped working on this project, and therefore i no longer support the code/schematic and printed circuit board.

Update 20-12-2014: this arduino mppt charger shield is tested and works withTim Nolans version of the arduino sketch. The placement of the mosfet’s on th

the finished arduino mppt chargere circuit board was designed to fit to a Aluminium U profile.

Just make sure you don’t try to cool down the power from a 9 map solar panel, with this small aluminium Profile.

To do that, you need a bigger cooling plate. You can find a link in the article below for an example of how to use a salvaged pentium 4 cooling plate. Continue reading

suntracker with arduino

SunTracker running on an Arduino web server and is designed as a LEGO model.

This Arduino suntracker /solar tracker called: ‘Sun-Trackuino-Delsol’.

I use a Arduino with nuelectronics ethershield which is used a few times in the past as solar data logger and stokerlogger / controller with Arduino is a WebClient (Remember use ARDUINO IDE 0018 to ethershield from nuelectronics! ).

Unfortunately this shield is discontinued but you can use any other arduino ethernet shield but you must change the code. Continue reading
