Tracker & Mounting Systems

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.

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.

Reducing solar project risk for extreme weather

We will discuss how rigorously tested modules and correctly engineered system designs create a major opportunity for U.S. utility-scale developers to lower project risk and LCOE.

Why bigger is better when bifacial modules meet single-axis tracking in the APAC region

Australia’s large-scale solar segment has adopted the combination of bifacial modules with single-axis tracking – delivering on LCOE and power output during the times of the day when wholesale prices are high. With large-format modules now coming on the market, will the wider Asia-Pacific region follow suit?

Meeting the expectation of a 30+ PV project operation lifetime, from the ground up

Utility scale solar developers are increasingly factoring in very long project lifetimes in their financial models. Given this, expectations for the durability of the components have never been higher. The mounting structure is literally the component on which the weight of these expectations rest – whether fixed tilt or single-axis tracker. But is the material from which the mounting structure is constructed built to last 25, 30 or even more years in the field?

High power heads to the rooftop

As larger, heavier and more powerful modules have dominated the past year’s new product announcements, ‘what about the rooftop segment?’ has become an increasingly common question. In this pv magazine Webinar, hosted in partnership with Trina Solar, we’ll take a look at the company’s new Vertex S series modules, designed for rooftop projects. Rated up to 405 W, the module promises higher energy yields than earlier products, without the added size and weight of new large-scale products. We’ll hear from Trina about the technologies contained within the module, and its work to ensure compatibility with balance-of-systems. Experienced engineers in rooftop PV evaluate the implications of designing systems with this module. We will also throw light on it from a wholesaler perspective and the strategic placement of the product in the diversified markets of Europe.

Maximizing ground coverage and cutting installation costs for a lower LCOE

In this pv magazine Webinar, developed in partnership with Jurchen, we’ll take a closer look at how the system, in which modules are densely packed in an east-west orientation to maximize ground coverage, compares to single-axis trackers and other tracking solutions in the ground mount project space, and take a look at some case studies from among the 200 MW the company has installed since launching the system in 2014.

Striving for highest cost-efficiency of bifacial tracker arrays & considerations for bifacial bankability

Join this pv magazine Webinar to learn more about how to optimize key parameters and when to use Albedo enhancing materials to receive the highest cost-efficiency of bifacial tracker arrays and the bankability of projects.

Integrating bifacial – New system design and bespoke products

Solar arrays comprise dozens of different component types, but only a few will require such drastic changes to the overall system design and materials as bifacial modules. Now the technology has reached a sizable market share it’s time to look at how the industry has reacted to the trend. Join this webinar together with four experts from market analysis and upstream business to discuss the impacts of the advent of bifacial module technology!
