Gonna use 2 18 volt solar panels in series to get 36v and powering motor for solar tracking. First post :sunny:

Neat! Should work, just make sure you have some buffer - like a battery or capacitors - to smooth out the load.

Use an off the shelf MPPT controller and a buffer like wetmelon mentioned!


Heres my project with this implementation. Will be cool experiment to just use the Odrive pro with one solar panel and do some tests.
