 Tilt Motion System for Control Education




Contents

Introduction

The device is composed of a rotating base with an elevation arm to orient the attitude of energy collectors, which are modular. The base of the device is linked to a drive train that is powered by a small servo motor and provides the propulsion to orient the attitude of the device. The elevation arm is connected to another small servo motor which provides the propulsion to orient the altitude of the device.

Tilt Motion System for Control Education

The system is composed of an Arduino control board that receives input from the Simulink controller in real time, and then sends output to the motors. There are two stepper motors which control the zenith and the azimuth angles. These motors position the base and arm of the device.
