WHITEPAPERS


BiTEC:  The
Bifacial Year

This whitepaper is the fourth and last part of a summary presenting the results obtained from September 2018 to September 2019 at Soltec’s Bifacial Tracking Evaluation Center (BiTEC) in Livermore, CA, USA. For a full year, BiTEC studied bifacial gain in photovoltaic modules developed according to the two most common market configurations nowadays: 1-in-vertical (1P) and 2-in-vertical (2P). Full year results show that individual modules in 2-in-vertical configuration obtain a bifacial gain of 15.7% under high albedo conditions…

Albedo: Sun
gathered from soil

This whitepaper is the third part of a summary presenting the results obtained from September 2018 until June 2019 at Soltec’s Bifacial Tracking Evaluation Center (BiTEC) in Livermore, CA, USA. BiTEC studied Bifacial Gain in photovoltaic modules developed according to the two most common market configurations nowadays: 1-in-vertical (1P) and 2-in-vertical (2P). Results obtained during fall, winter and spring months show that individual modules in 2-in-vertical configuration obtain a Bifacial Gain of 16.2% under high albedo…

How to simulate
bifacial projects?

This whitepaper is the second part of a summary presenting the results obtained from November 2018 until March 2019 at Soltec’s Bifacial Tracker Evaluation Center (BiTEC) in Livermore, CA, USA. BiTEC studied Bifacial Gain in photovoltaic modules developed according to the two most common tracker market configurations nowadays: one-in-portrait (1P) and two-in-portrait (2P). Results obtained during fall and winter months show that individual modules in two-in-portrait configuration trackers obtain a Bifacial Gain of 16.8%…

Bifacial Trackers,
the real deal

This white paper presents a summary of the results obtained from September to November 2018 at Soltec’s Bifacial Tracking Evaluation Center (BiTEC) in Livermore, California, USA. BiTEC studied the Bifacial Gain of PV modules deployed in the two most common tracker configurations in the market today: 1-in-Portrait (1P) and 2-in-Portrait (2P). Initial results show that individual modules deployed in SF7 Bifacial tracker in 2P configuration exhibit a Bifacial Gain that is 2.4% higher than that of the same modules in 1P configuration…

Facing extreme
weather conditions?

PV plants are often exposed to hazards that put the installation at risk, becoming an unpredictable economic investment. For this reason, single-axis solar tracker design must comply with a series of parameters that take into account the aeroelastic effects caused by the wind. Electronics improvement is also required to face weather phenomena such as cyclones, high winds or electrical storms.

In this document, the results of the wind study carried out by RWDI in collaboration with Soltec…
