Novel photovoltaic module tracking architecture

Edgar, Ross; Stachurski, Zbigniew; Cochard, Steven

Description

Concentrating photovoltaic modules need solar tracking to maintain focus. Wind forces exceed module weight and dictate tracking costs. A novel platform reduces wind loads by 20-30% and measurements reveal insolation of full-angular-range tracking.
