Nowadays electricity is one of the basic necessities of mankind. As the demand of electricity is increasing day by day, there is need to exploit renewable sources of energy. In the current era of power shortage, the use of solar energy could be beneficial to great extent. Considering the high cost of solar panels, our project addresses to analyses, design and implement an efficient algorithm for power extraction from solar panel using dc-dc converter and then utilizing that power for the electricity requirement of off-grid system. Moreover this project also address to the study of boosting efficiency of solar system by two dimensional sun tracking.
