 Post subject: Tracker Design in PVsyst

Hello,

We are working on a project in CA and the land/surface is not flat. We are using Helios 3D to design this project using single-axis trackers.
I know that we are cannot import trackers from Helios 3D to PVSYST as they will be imported as PV tables instead of trackers.
Is there a way to design trackers in PVSyst with a varying slope of trackers.

I tried to import surface, create a zone and tried to place trackers and its seems like zoning is only for PV tables and not for trackers.

Thanks
NG

In PVsyst, the parameters of all trackers should be identical.
So that at a given time, the orientation of all trackers is the same.
Therefore it is not possible to distribute trackers on a hill, with axis following the slope.

We will develop this feature in a next version.
But in this case the backtracking will be totally impossible (either in PVsyst and in the reality).
