Solar energy is a safe alternative which can replace current fossil fuels like coal and gas for the generation of electricity that produce air, water and land pollution. This paper describes the multiple use of solar energy by using solar panel as well as parabolic dish collector with efficient solar tracking system. The solar panel is a device that collects and convert the solar energy into electricity. It is also known as photovoltaic cell. The parabolic dish collector system consist of mirrors arrangement in a shape of parabola and concentrates the incident beam irradiation onto a small region called a focal point, where the receiver
needs to be located.The solar parabolic dish collector is one of the most efficient energy conversion technologies among the concentrating solar power system(CSP). In this project the two parabolic dishes are used for the hot water generation and steam generation as per requirement as well as for the solar cooker system. The solar panels and parabolic dishes are works combined at the same time. For better performance, maximum efficiency and maximum utilization of solar energy as well as for the safe working automatic solar tracking system are used that orients the payload towards the sun. The solar tracking system are completely dependent on the Light Dependent Resistor (LDR’S), Electronic Control Unit (ECU) and DC Motor. ECU
works as a decision maker unit for this set up. It compares the data received from the LDR’S and it supplies the power to the dc motor through the power supply unit and DC motor are run according to the requirement. The power required for ECU are supplied from the battery through the power supply unit and battery are charged by using the energy obtained from the solar panel. It is fully independent system, it does not required any external supply or power for its working. It is totally dependent on the energy obtained by the sun only.
