The chapter presents researches in the field of increasing the efficiency of the solar energy conversion in electric energy, using tracking systems that change the position of the photovoltaic (PV) panel in order to maximize the solar radiation degree of use. From efficiency and safety point of view, we have selected a dual-axis equatorial tracking system, with two degrees of freedom. The both motions (daily and seasonal) are driven by rotary actuators, which integrate irreversible transmission for blocking the system in the intermediary positions, between actuatings.
