Nowadays, solar energy can produce electricity to fill demand, and its green energy source leads to free pollution to our environment. This research aims to examine solar energy as a viable option and obtain the maximum amount from the ’green’ energy source. The study tries to get full power from a solar array at any given time. As Malaysia is a country that lies at 1° to 7° north of equator has an equatorial climate and long hours of sunlight all year round, there has been an essential finding to increase the efficiency of photovoltaic. The efficiency of the photovoltaic (PV) system is directly proportional to solar energy. The maximum efficiency from the PV systems can be achieved if the panel is kept perpendicular to the radiation of the sun. Hence, to achieve maximum concentration, radiation, and efficiency of the PV cell, tracking of the position of the sun with accuracy is extremely important. Multi axis dynamic solar tracker literally capable of harvesting more power than static solar panel. From that, the tracker will make sure the panel is at 90 degrees angle along with the sun movement, a study needs to be done to investigate whether the use of dual axis photovoltaic system is more effective or vice versa. This research is conducted to compares the performance between static and multi axis dynamic PV module qualitatively and quantitatively create on outdoor performance location at Malaysia which is National Defence University of Malaysia (NDUM) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
