The output power of photovoltaic systems is directly related to the amount of solar energy collected by the system and it is therefore necessary to track the sunís position with high accuracy. This study proposes multi-agent adaptive critic based nero fuzzy solar tracking system dedicated to PV panels. The proposed tracker ensures the optimal conversion of solar energy into electricity by properly adjusting the PV panels according to the position of the sun. To evaluate the usefulness of the proposed method, some computer simulations are performed and compared with fuzzy PD controller. Obtained results show the proposed control strategy is very robust, flexible and could be used to get the desired performance levels. The response time is also very fast. Simulation results that have been compared with fuzzy PD controller show that our method has the better control performance than fuzzy PD controller.
