Tracker & Mounting Systems

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!

Balancing cost and efficiency for a guaranteed LCOE reduction

In recent years, the industry has been chasing higher and higher efficiency, and lower production costs. However, with current cell technologies, efficiency-boosting innovations are increasingly hard to come by. Join this pv magazine Webinar to learn how to balance efficiency and cost as well as improve energy yield at system level.

Defeating the rust – How steel substructures defy danger

Hot-dip galvanized steel promises improved robustness and durability. Nevertheless, there are shocking findings from photovoltaic mounting systems. Steel posts rammed into the damp earth only a few years ago have shown signs of heavy corrosion underground, compromising the stability of the entire installation. Both wrong material selection and incorrect grounding are the culprits of this expensive mistake. In this webinar we will look into real cases, clarify which mistakes have been made in the past and look at how they can be avoided in the future.

High or low tilt angles for single-axis trackers in extreme winds – a different approach

Ensuring the stability of solar tracking systems and modules during wind events is one of the top concerns of solar site owners, project developers, and EPC contractors. A poorly designed single-axis tracker can result in damage to solar trackers and modules, leading to costly downtime, insurance claims. Our webinar partner Array Technologies will detail its passive wind mitigation system, which allows individual rows to assume a 52° tilt position if winds pick up.
