Tracker & Mounting Systems

Are you tracking or stowing? – A financial analysis of stow strategies

Current large format PV modules trackers already move into stow at lower wind speed thresholds, which means they can be in stow very often, defeating the purpose a tracker is designed for. Arctech’s solution to the problem: raising the wind speed threshold that triggers stow position. In this pv magazine Webinar, we will analyze the economic effects of this as well as review the methodology that Arctech has used to derive the energy yield for the different scenarios considered. DNV will provide feedback on how Arctech can refine its methodology in the future.

Revolutionizing tracker resiliency with Vanguard 1P

In pursuit of unlocking the true potential of 1P and eliminating barriers to utilization, TrinaTracker has developed Vanguard, a new 1P tracker solution designed to conquer the terrain it’s installed on and the wind it will face. In this pv magazine Webinar, Trina Solar will outline the philosophy that went into the design of Vanguard 1P, highlighting how the system has been optimized to perform in a variety of complex scenarios and be installed nearly 20% faster than prior solutions.

Understanding and Mitigating the Dangers Posed by Hail and Wind

In this pv magazine Webinar, we will take a different approach to the conversation of hail and wind mitigation, sitting down with two of the most knowledgeable quality professionals in the industry, starting with a deep dive on the evolving nature of hail risk, before examining what steps can be taken in design, build and operation of the plants to mitigate risks and future proof projects in hail-prone geographies.

Optimized Stow-strategy for higher yields in single-axis tracking

In regions where it’s too windy, stow is the most stable position the modules can assume. However, this is done at a much lower wind than the project design wind speed. In this pv magazine Webinar, tracker manufacturer Arctech will show us how increasing the wind speed threshold, allows for increased tracking time, as well as improved stowing parameters, which minimize energy losses when the tracker is in stow, helping increase the overall energy yield of a tracker project.

Output verified: monitoring of the PV plant from the ground up

Suppliers are updating SCADA and monitoring platforms to provide new levels of data acquisition and analytics to provide PV project owners and operators with unparalleled insights into design, performance and O&M. Join this pv magazine Webinar, in partnership with TrinaTracker, to learn more about these developments with a leading PV solution provider. The webinar will see the global launch of the Trina Smart Cloud, including a demo of the platform drawing on real-world data from Trina-supplied projects in the field.

Tracker Development Solutions that increase reliability and reduce O&M costs

Join this pv magazine Webinar to discover more about how solar tracking technology improves through every generation of products: from optimizations of software to lower failure rates, how R&D and quality control improvements work to reduce costs and downtime, and how plants are designed right from the initial phase to deliver a full life cycle. Also on the webinar agenda, an independent expert looks holistically at understanding industry best preventative maintenance approaches that lead to effective operational performance.

Ensuring tracker stability in extreme weather conditions

In this pv magazine Webinar, we will learn about the high wind related risks for mounted large-format modules and their impact on the trackers’ structure; the wind tunnel tests that were performed on Vanguard 2P and Agile 1P tracker systems; and how the output gathered from the tunnel test validates trackers’ stability, drives new solution developments and guides design adaptation to project sites.

The right tracker for you: Comparing 1P and 2P solutions

In this pv magazine Webinar, our initiative partner will demonstrate how to make the right decision for using either a one-in-portrait or a two-in-portrait tracker. There is a range of considerations, such as a tracker’s ability to adapt to the terrain it is built on, whether you are using bifacial modules, or how expensive the land is, to bear in mind. In addition, the decision to opt for 1P or 2P will entail how the electrical configuration is made and how the software and control electronics are set up. Thus, another layer of financial and technical parameters changes and needs to be carefully considered.

Extreme damping – A new wind mitigation strategy for trackers

Join this pv magazine webinar with our initiative partner FTC Solar and learn about their new wind mitigation strategy. Also, on the agenda, we will discuss the differences between deploying a lot of stiffness or damping to deal with high wind conditions.

Big modules, bigger ballast? – New safety considerations for the rooftop sector

Join this webinar and learn more about wind effects on big modules, aerodynamic testing, structure codes, and how to ensure your next project is safe.
