Nowadays, the use of electric energy is increasing every day. The source of electric energy is commonly using generator that generate from burning the fossil fuel or coal. The solar energy is now starting to replace old convictional method and become important to our world. Solar energy is solar radiation from sun converting to electric by solar panel for common electric application. Usage of solar energy still small compare to older conventional ways. Energy converted by solar panel is depending on the angle between the positions of the sun and surface of solar panel. Solar energy will receive maximum when surface of solar panel is vertical 900 to the position of the sun. Besides that, the efficiency converts solar energy to electric by solar panel surface is depend on the cleanness. The dust is effected the ability of the solar panel to gain the sun irradiation form sun. It is because the dust will block the sunlight though the solar cell in solar panel. This project is design, construct and implement a tracker that has ability to track the sunlight during daylight and have ability self-cleaning. The system is use a microcontroller-based on solar tracking system which will process input data from sensor or instrument and produce output for motor to move the solar panel. As the result, a prototype of self-cleaning solar cell with sun tracking system is operated and able to achieve the objective or goal for this project.
