Nowadays power generation is one of the greatest challenges of humanity in the framework of Sustainable Development. For example, as it is globally accepted sun tracking systems allows improvement of solar panel power ratio. In order to illustrate this concept, this paper presents the design and a behaviour modelling of a two axis small scale system for future didactical applications. The principle of tracking is described. Mathematical description is done and a mixed SPICE modelling of the system, including geometrical, optical, electronic linear and non-linear aspects is built. Simulations results are analysed. Practical mechanical and electronic designs are detailed, before conclusion. This small scale solar tracking system is now installed in a eco-friendly small scale house model.
