There is a need for the applications of photovoltaic (PV) system in Malaysia, due to the rising ofworld oil prices. Malaysia is well endowed with non - renewable and renewable energy source. Bulk ofour electricity demand is met by the use offossil - fuel based electrical power plants. TNB's current energy generation mix is approximately 35% coal, 34.7% natural gas and 18.26% hydro with the remaining 12.1% from oil, gas and diesel for a combined installed capacity of 10481 MW. A shift towards alternative energy such as solar energy, one of the abundant energy in Malaysia, is essential. There are many initiatives have been initiated in moving towards the development of solar energy in Malaysia. Use of PV in harnessing solar energy to generate electricity is a proven technology, but the utilization ofPV is not optimized. PV cell is expensive and the efficiency ofPV is relatively low. Agood tracking system is crucial in order to optimize PV performance in generating electricity. Thus, inthis project the focus is in designing a system that will track the sun for better PV performance. Ahybrid tracking system is introduced in this project, where it consists of two controlling methods. The automatic controller system will control the motion of the tracker in East - to - West direction, while the manual system will control North - to - South motion. As a conclusion, this project offers simple yet practical system that can help to improve the efficiency ofthe PV related system.
