Maximum power point tracker in a photovoltaic system allows to maximize the energy drawn from the connected photovoltaic modules. In the partial shade conditions there can be more than one maximum point in photovoltaic output power curve. The solution for this situation is a maximum power point tracker algorithm, which finds the global maximum. In literature, there is a large number of studies on maximum power point trackers. Therefore designers are drowning in a sea of knowledge. This study eliminates similar studies and classified them into groups, and at the end of the study a comparison table is given to guide the designers in the performance information of the selected studies. This study aims to guide the designers to make a sensible selection of a maximum power point tracker algorithm for partial shade conditions.
