Abstract : Electricity currently plays an essential role for the permanence and development of life. Still, the electric power sources have been depleted, forcing researchers to look for an alternative source of power, which led to discovery of anew sources of energy. Solar energy is renewable and environmentally benign, and photovoltaic panels can convert it to electricity. These panels can be utilized in a fixed configuration or in a single or dual-axis solar tracking system., The efficiency is low in a fixed form because the panels are tilted at a limit angle, whereas in a tracking system, the panel is t design o move on a single or dual-axis. A single-axis model in which the board is moved from east to west its more efficient than fixed panels. On the other hand, a dual axis model allows the board to rotate in four directions. In this study, the practical measurements of both models proved that the electric energy in the dual-axis model is more by an amount 44% Compared with the measured power from the single-axis model.
