The DEGERenergie GmbH & amp; Co. KG (Horb a.N.) developed a new process for retrofitting of astronomical tracking systems on the patented “MLD” technology.
In a test in a solar park in Greek Oinofita equipped with seven axis solar trackers with astronomical tracking, the yield has already increased after one day, reported Deger in a press release.
solar power income increased by 7%
As the previous system always had difficulty in tracking and maintenance expense was large, the solar park operator decided Kepanape Ltd. for retrofitting with the sensor-controlled MLD technology DEGER.
The solar park has a rated output of 100 kW. To make the effect significantly, a tracker with 13.4 kW has been selected, which is shaded in the afternoon. The current control has been removed and replaced by two MLD sensors. After a day of solar power output of these modules has increased by 7%, reports Deger.
MLD sensors align solar panels from the energy-rich point
The MLD sensors constantly measure the intensity of sunlight and direct the solar modules always the most energetic point. Not only is the direct sunlight is taken into account, but also reflecting radiation from bright surfaces, rocks or snow.
The MLD technology average 45% higher yields could, compared to fixed-mount systems, are generated emphasizes Deger. Already installed tracking systems can be retrofitted to the MLD technology.
The Greek solar park will now be completely converted to MLD technology.
