The paper speaks of photovoltaic systems and everything related to them. Emphasis is placed on sun tracking algorithms by azimuth and elevation. The paper shows the movement of the sun and mathematical model that gives us the exact position of the sun in azimuth and elevation throughout the year. This model is used for one-axe or two-axe tracking system. Results are displayed and compared for systems with or without of tracking system. All elements of photovoltaic system are presented and modeled with concept that provides the maximum power (MPPT). All this is also explained with in detail and shown in the simulations.
