Abstract: This paper presents the virtual prototype of the mono-axis tracking system used for improving the efficiency of a string of photovoltaic modules. The solar tracker simultaneously changes the daily position of the modules, using a linear actuator that drives a rack-pinion mechanism. The key in optimizing the tracking system is to maximize the received solar radiation and to minimize the energy consumption for tracking. The virtual prototype is developed using a digital platform which integrates the following software solutions: CATIA - for the solid modeling of the components, ADAMS - for developing the mechanical model in MBS (Multi-Body Systems) concept, and MATLAB/Simulink - for the control system design.
