3.3.3 Mechanical Tracking

Course subject(s) Module 3. Introduction to Location Issues

In the previous video you learned to calculate a fixed tilt angle for which the incident irradiance is optimal over a┬ácertain period of time. However, some pv systems have the means mechanically adjust the tilt angle, thereby keeping the module at it’s optimal tilt. In this video you will learn about pv systems with mechanical tracking.
