Optimising direct normal insolation of rectangular PV platforms

Edgar, Ross; Stachurski, Zbigniew; Cochard, Steve


Insolation measurements recorded over decades in tropic, arid and temperate locations of Australia are used to analyse the levels of insolation falling on tracking and non-tracking platforms. The direct normal incident levels of insolation are reported as a function of solar zenith angle for several sites, making the impact of limited zenith range tracking quantifiable for standard photovoltaic, concentrated-PV and for double-layer orthogonal-offset collectors. For large field arrays of...[Show more]
