Abstract: Genetic Algorithms (GAs), Evolution Strategies (ES), Evolutionary Programming (EP) and Genetic Programming (GP) are some of the best known types of Evolutionary Algorithm (EA)where it is a class of global search algorithms inspired by natural evolution. Lots of research has been carried out in solar tracking system using different types of Evolutionary Algorithm. In this research, genetic algorithm is explored to maximize the performance of solar tracking system. This work evaluates the best combination of GA parameters by always fine-tuning the position of solar tracking prototype to receive maximum solar radiation. Both software and hardware have been developed to simulate related genetic algorithm results using a combination of variant genetic operators. Under conventional genetic algorithm operation, it is concluded that genetic algorithm with selective clonal mutation is able to produce the best fitness value at 0.98027 with both axles X and Y with inclination of +2 degree to the sun position.
