Energy requirement continues to increase with the growth in population. The fossil fuel based conventional sources of energy are widely used but they are polluting and depleting fast. Whether it is the conventional or non-conventional source, solar energy is the mother of all these forms of energy. It gives light and heat energy in such a manner that doesn't harm the environment. Power obtained from the fixed solar mounting system due to its fixed arrangement is very little. The power generation from solar panels can be increased with the help of tracking systems in such a manner that panels face the sun during the day in all the seasons. A comparative analysis and study of various solar tracking systems are presented in this paper.
