Abstract: As a result the need for energy continues to increase, so that the use of alternative energy is required, one of this is the use of solar panels. Solar panel will work optimally if it get maximum sunlight and work in the working temperature range of solar panel, so needed to implement a solar panel optimization system by adjusting the degree of tilt and an integrated cooling system for the Internet of Things. The method used is setting the degree of inclination so that the movement of the solar panels is at the maximum slope of sunlight and utilizing the Peltier effect on water as a surface cooling system for solar panel. To ensure the system works properly, all parameters are monitored using Internet of Things-based technology in real-time. From the tests that have been carried out, the system can work well as a solar panel optimization system that has been integrated with the Internet of Things, which shows an increase in power from setting the degree of tilt of 35.19% and tilt angle settings and cooling system by 44.16% between solar panel without system and solar panel with system.
