Hi PVSyst team,

I have a couple of doubts with the PVSyst V6.26 - PREMIUM PREMIUM and I hope you can help me.

Doubt 1: I am trying to model a tracking PV system with a N-S axis orientation (watch case1 of image 2) but I don't know if the "Pitch" parameter which appears in the field "Orientation" (watch image 1) refers to the distance between trackers (watch the case 1 of image2) or the distance between panels whithin a tracker structure (watch case 2 of image 2).

Doubt 2: I don't find an option for the tracking system with one axis oriented N-S in the Construction/Perspective tool (3D Shading). (Watch image 3).

I'll be verty grateful if you can help me,
Best regards,

Simón Aguilera

1) Pitch in PVSYST is centerline to centerline of the tracker axis.
2) I think tilted axis means the entire axis is tilted ( not the individual modules on the axis)
You might want to try the other options with 2 axis.

#1) In a N-S tracker system, pitch is the E-W distance from post to post for the tracker. This can be verified in the shade scene once constructed.
#2) The option is called Tilted Axis to select N-S tracker.
