Sun position sensor



The utility model discloses a sun position sensor, comprising a finding and tracing unit and an accurate tracing unit, wherein the finding and tracing unit comprises two groups of a plurality of photodiodes which are uniformly distributed; and each photodiode accepts irradiation of sun light to generate current, and the position of the sun can be initially determined by calculating a current deviation value to guide the accurate tracing unit to rotate, so that the sun light enters a probe range of the accurate tracing unit. The sun position sensor provided by the utility model has a compact structure. The tracing precision of equipment to be controlled can be superior to be more than 0.1 degree. The sun position sensor is applicable to any area capable of using solar energy to generate electricity power on the earth.
