This paper presents a study analysis of solar tracker system to increase the efficiency of solar panels. Tracking refers to ?the act or process of following something or someone?. So, the automatic solar tracker system is the act or process of following the sun lights to get the maximum energy from sun. To increase the efficiency or to get maximum energy, the solar panels are always in perpendicular profile with respect to the sun light. To increase the efficiency of solar panels two methods are analyzed i.e. solar tracking with mirror booster and automated cleaning system. Solar tracker system consists of microcontroller, LDRs, stepper motor, solar panel, mirror booster, automated cleaning system etc. LDR sensor senses the sun light falling on the solar panel and rotates the solar panel according to the intensity of light with help of stepper motor. Mirror is used as a booster to maximize the efficiency. Programmed microcontroller controls the system by communicating with sensor and motor driver based on the movement of sun.
