Grist Posted September 6, 2012 Share Posted September 6, 2012 Horizontal axis trackers simulationWith horizontal trackers (North/South one axis trackers), in the diagram losses PVsyst report, the overall gain of the Global incident irradiation in collector plane is much higher (+24%) than the simulation of tracker manufacturer (+14%) with the same weather data, with backtracking option and the same distance between trackers in south West of France.I tried a simulation in an African city, and there is 20% overall gain of the Global incident irradiation in collector plane in Bamako whereas in South East of France (Marseille), there is 26.4% gain with backtracking option and the same distance between trackers.Is it possible that PVsyst overestimate irradiation received on the tracker for French cities?ThanksBest regards Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
