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.
Trackers offer yield improvements of up to 20% depending on the location of the site. Dynamic wind loads can self-excite in result in failure modes like torsional galloping, flutter, or vortex lock-in. Reports of destroyed solar plants have made their way into the mainstream media even. There are solutions to this problem, and our webinar partner mounting-structure manufacturer Schletter has brought to the market a novel approach, its new single-axis tracker.
