Dynamic Wind Analysis in Tracker Array Design

Date: May 26th, 2020 at 2pm ET / 11am PT

Duration: 1 hour

PV plants are often exposed to hazards that put the installation at risk of becoming an unpredictable economic investment. For this reason, single-axis solar tracker design must comply with a series of parameters that take into account the aeroelastic effects caused by the wind. Electronics improvement is also required to face weather phenomena such as cyclones, high winds or electrical storms.

Join Soltec for a discussion of the different analysis we have made to prove the dynamic effects of the wind in a pv tracker installation. Through our testing, we have learned ways to get the the best design of a tracker to face the wind and other extreme weather conditions.

Attendees will learn:

  • The types of tests available for testing wind tunnels on pv trackers
  • How to create a good design taking into account the dynamic effects
  • Understanding the different stow strategies for each situation
