Abstract: Solar energy is a vital renewable source of energy in India. To extract and utilize this renewable source of energy photovoltaic solar panels are used. To gather the maximum amount of energy a good efficiency solar panels are used. The maximum efficiency is achieved when the maximum irradiation from the sun is received by the earth. The irradiation and temperature are proportional with time, a solar tracker should be developed and positioned to extract the maximum energy with respect to time. This paper is aimed to find the maximum tracking point and the maximum efficiency using Incremental Conductance (IC) algorithm. The IC method is the simplest and the easiest way to find the efficiency of the panels with respect to the time throughout the day.
