The quick exhausting of traditional energy sources and the present consistently expanding energy request with regards to ecological issues have supported concentrated research on solar energy innovation. Apprehending most extreme energy from the sun by utilizing solar PV technology is impenetrable. A few features that influence the solar energy yield of this technology comprise the material of the photovoltaic, solar irradiances topographical area, the orientation of the panel, the angle of sun and surrounding climate. This present work reviews the ideologies and contrivances of solar PV tracking systems to decide the greatest solar panel tilt-angle, both isotopic and ant isotopic solar models and uses of numerous procedures for outlining solar panel tilt- angle by means of dissimilar optimization techniques. The work displays that sun-tracking systems are quite expensive than the opposing fixed mounted variety. This is mostly due to having motor-powered and moving portions. More also, having all these moving and mechanical parts means that there will be some amount of regular inspection, adjustments or even replacements required which leads way to another disadvantage. For greatest energy harvest, the optimum tilt angle for solar PV systems must be resolved definitely for every territory as it is basic for most extreme power generation by the system.
