Date of Publication :7th March 2017

Abstract: A solar tracker is a device that orients a payload toward the Sun. Payloads are usually solar panels, parabolic troughs, Fresnel reflectors, mirrors or lenses. Although, Solar Energy is facilitating the power sector industry, the research and development in this area is yet to be satisfactory. Our contribution in this paper is an advanced survey focusing on solar tracking concept and most advanced research issues. This paper provides a better understanding of the solar tracking device and identifies important research issues in this burgeoning area of power generation.
