Abstract: Photovoltaic technology allows converting solar energy into electrical energy without environmental impact during operation. This paper evaluates the performance of two photovoltaic systems: one fixed and one equipped with a solar tracker. The objective of this research is to develop a solar tracking system that is actuated by thermo siphon principle to increase the electrical energy by using the solar tracking system. The need for energy consumption of the solar tracker is eliminated.
