This paper presents details regarding design and construction of a microcontroller-based solar air heating system. The system was designed by the IUT Bethune electrical engineering students to meet the requirement of a capstone design project. This device has been developed so that it is completely autonomous in terms of its energy supply. It uses solar energy only to power its electronic system and the actuators. This energy is provided through the use of a photovoltaic panel. The experimental tests show the efficiency of this system to be quite good.
