The aim of the thesis is to make energy yield comparison of optimal single axis tracking system and fixed mounting PV system. The work investigates the relevance of single axis solar tracking and establishes the most suitable PV system for a high latitude location. Several PV system types were described, evaluated and compared in terms of performance, land usage and costs. The impacts of solar tracker limitations and clouds on performance were considered. Components for possible system configurations were suggested. Performance calculation tool was created and tested with numerical searches.
