Photovoltaic (PV) technology is one of the clean sustainable energy technology which sourced from the sun. However, there are many issues that can potentially degrade the system. This paper extensively discusses on the hybrid system power generation for the photovoltaic (PV) system. In addition, this paper also reviews the factor that affecting the photovoltaic system performance including the types of PV cell, the effect of ambient condition, system components, and the power quality characteristics. The performance of the monocrystalline type greater than the polycrystalline type around 5-7%. The usage of an inverter gives an impact with 8-20% of total energy losses. Finally, this paper summarises the future research work needed to overcome the drawback of the available photovoltaic systems.
