A gradient-descent method for optimisation of solar collector arrays

Cumpston, Jeffrey; Pye, John

Description

We present a numerical function for approximating shading losses around two-axis tracking solar collectors. It is used in a gradient descent algorithm to optimise relative collector position. System yield is increased by 1%-2%.
