Solar technology has great potential in terms of supplying the world’s energy demands. The effective way of using sunlight with solar energy concentration technology and solar tracking system is discussed in this paper. The present status of application and the ongoing research and development work suggest that parabolic dish solar concentrators coupled with solar trackers will bring a breakthrough of commercial solar energy concentration application technology in the coming years. The paper is…

Single or dual axis trackers, control systems and electric drive losses for photovoltaic applications
The electric power consumption of the photovoltaic tracking system will be written as a function of the angle change, and the electric drive which enables tracking is considered as the loss of the energy produced in the photvoltaic system.
