This project deals with the design and construction of a small scale photovoltaic generator equipped with a solar tracker system. The unit built is protected against gusts of wind 50m/hr or greater that could potentially damage it, in which case the panel would be placed in a protective position. The designed solar tracker is able to maintain a difference angle of 1.5 degrees between the normal to the PV panel and the sun rays. The unit is a mobile system aimed to provide energy in remote areas or during emergency conditions.
