This paper gives an overview of the existing solar tracking systems, their benefits and outcomes. It further discusses the disadvantages of solar trackers and suggests Compound Parabolic Concentrators as a viable option for tracking. Solar trackers are used to ensure that the solar panel is at a perpendicular with the sun, so that it maximizes the energy falling on it.Compound Parabolic Concentrator (CPC) is a special type of solar collector designed in the shape of two meeting parabolas.

Keywords: Solar Tracking, Compound Parabolic Concentrator, CPC
