Solar panels are power sources in photovoltaic applications. Solar panels I-V curves depend on environmental conditions such as irradiance, temperature, load and degradation level. In this paper, design and implementation of simultaneous fuzzy-based maximum power point tracker (MPPT) and sun tracker are presented for deployable solar panels. A digital controller was implemented by an AVR microcontroller. Results showed that the proposed system ensure to have photovoltaic system with higher efficiency. Finally, we observed that, using the proposed fuzzy-based MPP tracking and sun tracking simultaneously, solar panel output power can be remarkably increased leading in turn to reduction of the size, weight and cost of solar panels in photovoltaic systems.
