Abstract—With the increasing rate at which fossil fuels are de- pleting, there is a recent advent of technology in solar cells. The efficiency of a typical industrial standard PV panel is around 18- 20% which is quite low. To get more yield different approaches in installation design are there. Here we discussed solar tracking and soiling of PV panels. A comparative study of different implementations is presented. We made a comparison based on these, wherein there are different physical and geographical inputs based on which it suggests what type of PV panel should be installed and what should be done about soiling. From this data we made a tool which guides the people installing PV panels about which tracker and soiling solution they should use. At the end, we presented our own hybrid solar tracking system using image processing.
