One of the uses of new renewable energy (EBT) in Indonesia which has great potential is solar panels. Solar panels are electrical devices that are used to convert solar energy into electrical energy. The limited surface area of the panels requires users to be able to pay attention to the work efficiency of solar panels. The aspect that has the most influence on optimizing the efficiency of solar panel performance is the placement of the surface of the solar panel against incoming solar radiation. Therefore, it is necessary to have a method to detect the position of the sun to provide input to the actuator so that the surface of the solar panel is positioned in the direction of the sun's rays. This study describes the accuracy of detecting the position of the sun using digital image processing methods. This process needs to be done as a reference in designing a dual axis solar tracker. Detection of the sun's position using this method gets 100% accurate results in cloudless sky conditions and gets 80% success results in cloudy sky conditions.
