This paper presents a comprehensive review on solar tracking systems and their potentials on Photovoltaic systems. The paper overviews the design parameters, construction, types and drive system techniques covering myriad usage applications. The performance of different tracking mechanisms is analyzed and compared against fixed systems on Photovoltaic cell, module, panel, array, and systems. Analysis showed major discrepancies of tracking moods against fixed systems (8%:85%) based on many factors such as weather, tracking type, location, and application itself. This review is helpful for researchers and engineers to overview the whole systems designs and the most beneficial to their usage.
