This work presents the design and construction of PV tracking system to improve the efficiency of solar output power. Here, single axis solar tracking technique is implemented to track the azimuth angle which enables the movement of solar panel in according to the sun’s illumination. FLC topology is utilised to control the position of a panel. Simulation has been made through Matlab/Simulink. The obtained results reveal that the proposed solar tracking improves the efficiency of PV array output power comparatively than a fixed position.

Keywords- Solar tracking system, Fuzzy controller, Azimuth angle.
