Bart Wyns UGent, Clara-Mihaela Ionescu UGent, Daniel Neamtu, Robain De Keyser UGent, Jeroen De Maeyer UGent and Maarten Michielssens (2012) PROCEEDINGS OF THE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON OPTIMISATION OF ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT. p.1058-1064
abstract
Generally, one of the key requirements of modern buildings, besides an appropriate heating and ventilation, is to offer and maintain a suitable lighting. In this contribution, a description of a system capturing and re-directing sunlight into open spaces inside the building without affecting the inside temperature (isotherm) is given. The system mainly consists of three principal components: a mirror capturing the light of the sun and reflecting it inside the building via a prism system, a printed circuit board with two photovoltaic sensors for positioning the mirror, and finally, a motor rotating the printed circuit board and mirror. A closed-loop control system to track the movement of the sun is proposed. The results show good tracking behavior.
