Paper Abstract

The paper reports the design and realization of a solar internal lighting system equipped with a solar tracking system. Full visible spectrum solar light has been focussed using a solar concentrator and guided inside the building through optical fiber whose other end is coupled to a fiber texture for lighting in building during day hours. The developed system is found to be an efficient system for interior lighting during daytime.
