CLAIMS:

1. A solar tracking displacement apparatus (101) comprising:

a. a plurality of vertical posts (102) arranged in a spaced apart configuration;

b. a plurality of torque tube segments (104A) fitted across the upper extremities of said vertical posts (102), said torque tube segments (104A) being coupled to each other to form an assembled torque tube (104) displaceable rotationally about its longitudinal axis; and

c. displacement means (115) coupled to said torque tube segments (104A), said displacement means (115) configured to rotationally displace said plurality of connected torque tube segments (104) in a controlled and synchronized manner.

2. The apparatus (101) as claimed in claim 1, wherein said displacement means (115) includes:

a. a plurality of mechanically coupled gearboxes (117 and 117A), wherein each of said plurality of mechanically coupled gearboxes (117 and 117A) is supported by a respective vertical post (102);

b. a plurality of beams (110), wherein each of said plurality of beams (110) is orthogonally coupled to a respective torque tube segment (104A);

c. a plurality of first wire ropes (112A);

d. a plurality of second wire ropes (112B);

e. a plurality of pulleys (106), wherein each of said plurality of pulleys (106) is rotatable by a respective worm gearbox (117), each of said pulleys (106) is configured to wind the first wire rope (112A) while unwinding the respective second wire rope (112B) and vice versa; and

f. a plurality of semi-circular members (108), wherein each of said plurality of semicircular members (108) is connected to a respective beam (110), wherein each of said semi-circular member (108) is coupled to a respective pulley via a respective first wire rope (112A) and respective second wire rope (112B), each of said semi- circular members (108) is configured to rotationally displace a respective torque tube segment (104A) about its longitudinal axis in a controlled manner and hence the plurality of connected torque tube segments (104) in a controlled and synchronized manner.

3. The apparatus (101) as claimed in claim 2, wherein said apparatus includes a motor (118), said motor (118) is coupled with one of said plurality of worm gearboxes (117) mechanically coupled to corresponding bevel gear boxes (117A). The plurality of bevel gear boxes (117A) are coupled via a torsion rod or pipe (144), said motor (118) is configured to generate a drive, said motor (118) further configured to drive each of said plurality of bevel gearboxes (117A) based on said generated drive via said torsion rod or pipe (144).

4. The apparatus (101) as claimed in claim 2, wherein one end of each of said first wire ropes (112A) and each of said second wire ropes (112B) is fitted at two ends of a respective beam (110) and another end of each of said first wire ropes (112A) and each of said second wire ropes (112B) is fitted on one of the two pulley flanges (107) of a respective pulley (106).

5. The apparatus (101) as claimed in claim 3, wherein each of said plurality of gearboxes (117) has an output shaft (118A), said output shaft (118A) configured to angularly displace each of said plurality of pulleys (106) based on said drive generated by said one motor (118).

6. The apparatus (101) as claimed in claim 2, wherein each of said plurality of beams (110) is coupled to a respective torque tube segment (104A) via a respective swivel pin joint (114).

7. The apparatus (101) as claimed in claim 1, wherein each of said torque tube segments (104A) is coupled to a respective post (102) via a respective connecting bracket (120).

8. The apparatus (101) as claimed in claim 2, wherein each of said semi-circular members (108) is an arcuate rope guide.

9. The apparatus (101) as claimed in claim 1, wherein each of said torque tube segments (104 A) has a circular cross section.
