pv magazine works with our partners to organise webinars that are thematically oriented and do not serve the purpose of sales. We are open to all manufacturers and understand ourselves as a neutral platform where market players enter into dialogue. We look forward to your participation and critical feedback.

Upcoming Webinars

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.

View-factor vs. ray tracing – which bifacial modelling techniques should you use?

Our webinar partner, Soltec, has logged in 12 months of testing in its Bifacial Tracker Evaluation Center and will share some of the key findings in this webinar. Aside from news about AC/DC-ratio practices, also joining the webinar is NREL’s Bifacial PV Analyst, Silvana Ayala, who will provide her insights into the two methodologies to calculate rear-side irradiance.

Previous Webinars

Can a tracker be as stable as a fixed tilt?

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.

Hybrid inverters – the new trend in residential solar+storage?

The Gen24 Plus is a hybrid inverter or DC coupled system. Such inverters allow multiple energy flows into the battery and the household at the same time. The clue; such a system setup does not require an extra battery inverter.

Optimizing bifacial gain and balancing investment costs

There is a difference between maximizing bifacial gain, and cost effectively optimizing a bifacial pv system, which means balancing increased investment costs and energy yield payback. It’s often claimed that bifacial technology can deliver energy yield gains of 20% or more, but where is the line between this potential and the added investment cost required for bifacial optimizations? In the first part of this upcoming webinar, Bruno Wittmer, chief development engineer at PVSyst, will show us how bifacial gain can be maximized through insight gained from system simulations in PVSyst.

Greenwashing vs. verifiable sustainability: What’s the difference?

How green is PV? And why does it matter?

Performance modeling for accurate energy output and yield prediction of bifacial PV systems

Today Bifacial PV is becoming mainstream with capacity available at GW scale and corresponding utility scale projects globally, as the deployment of bifacial PV technology has proven to be the most effective solution to reduce the LCOE and increase the IRR of PV systems. Join our webinar to understand the impact of bifacial modules on the LCOE of the project, including calculating the higher energy generation level for different environmental conditions and installation setup.

Saving time and money – full control over your asset

This webinar will provide a deep dive into the functions of the O&M monitoring software of Gantner Instruments Environmental Solutions. Experience a live demonstration of the software on a real-world plant and ask your questions about best practices.

Le nuove tecnologie fotovoltaiche bifacciali nel mercato fotovoltaico italiano

il webinar fornirà un’introduzione alla tecnologia bifacciale con riferimento ai moduli ad alta efficienza e alle ultime innovazioni tecnologiche, permettendo allo stesso tempo di conoscere tutti i dettagli e il potenziale dei moduli bifacciali Swan di Jinko attraverso esempi specifici e illustrazioni grafiche. In particolare, verrà illustrato come e quanto i moduli bifacciali possano incrementare il rendimento delle installazioni fotovoltaiche, assicurando così un maggiore ritorno economico.

LeTID and the future of module degradation testing – control for defects to deliver lower LCOE

Light and elevated temperature induced degradation (LeTID) is a pain for investors and EPCs. In this webinar, Q CELLS will openly demonstrate how it ensures that the modules that it produces are LeTID free. The company pioneered research and investigation into this effect several years ago.

Smart tracker design enabled by advanced testing

Next generation of wind tunnel testing can increase confidence for PV plant owners.

How LG is shaping the smart home of the future – combining PV, battery storage, heat pump and more

LG share its view on the combination of PV, battery storage system and heat pump to cover all of the house’s heat consumption, and to discuss key components of its system in detail in our pv magazine webinar
