The objective of this research is tracking power obtained daily (March-September 2017 in Mansoura state) from moving solar panel system during 12 hrs. to enhance power gain. The automatic sun tracking system provides peter alignment of solar panel with the sun. The aim of designing and implementing technology an automatic dual-axes tracking mechanism though chaining the sun tilt-angle due to change of both the seasons and day time is to improve maximum power gain from sun. This proposed system is added to determine the exact time of cleaning process based on real-time clock (RTC). The reading of power output from the proposed system gives a power gain of 74% more than power gain of a fixed solar panel. The proposed solar system design has low consumed power, minimum cost, reliable structure and residential usage applications. The practical experiment proves that all critical points which obtained from moving solar system is better than fixed solar system.
