The challenge for operators of PV power plants is to achieve the highest possible energy yield with their plants. Besides selecting the right technology, the best way to increase yield is by using single-axis or dual-axis tracking systems, which can raise the yield of PV power plants by 30 to 40 percent, depending on the location. Precise tracking of the position of the sun is actually a basic requirement for solar power plants working with concentrated photovoltaics (CPV) or concentrated solar power (CSP).
Although we can't influence periods of sunshine, we can make better use of them. With our control systems for single-axis or dual-axis trackers for horizontal and/or zenithal tracking of solar modules, you can significantly improve performance. Tracking is calculated using a high-precision astronomic algorithm (accuracy 0.0003°). The core of our tracking solution is the SIMATIC S7-1200 controller in combination with the ready-to-use solar tracking toolbox. This library reduces your engineering effort and easily enables modular and scalable applications.
