Abstract

In order to construct solar energy concentrator one should keep in mind that earth is continuously rotating, a system of tracking the sun each day of the year from time of sunrise and time of sunset as well as sun's orientation i.e. sun's declination varies each day basis. Solar energy collector must also rotate in sun's direction. Many different types and designs of solar cookers are available in market but still solar cookers is not being used by common man on a large scale in India. In this paper designs of different solar energy tracking apparatus are revisited.
