DC Harness

StringRunner

DC Harness StringRunner is a proprietary standard component of Soltec’s SF7 tracker. It performs the functions of combining fused PV source circuits and cabling a homerun trunk circuit within the tracker torque-tube to a DC power switch for off-take. It is unique on the market with a proprietary solution internal to the tracker torque-tube.

Reduced Cost

DC Harness StringRunner eliminates the traditional fused combiner box, provides quick-connection to the homerun trunk circuit, and controls the power output of up to eight trackers typically around 240 kW.
DC Harness StringRunner reduces dramatically the costs of PV power cable management material, installation, and maintenance; and provides the highest-grade of cable protection against the actions of UV radiation, weathering conditions and rodents.

More advantages

  • 81% less wire lengtth
  • 75% less installation labor
  • Factory tested insulation resistance
  • No traditional Combiner Box
  • 10-year warranty
  • Zero maintenance
  • Quick-connectors speed installation up

TeamTrack™

TeamTrack™ is part of comprehensive SF7 tracker position control that avoids inter-row shading in the early and late-day hours due to uneven terrain influences.
TeamTrack™ achieves up to 6% yield-gain over standard tracking

Yield-gain 3D Modelling

The TeamTrack™ 3D algorithm uses NREL sun-position data versus programmed constants of local irregularities to execute energy optimized backtracking position control, avoiding inter-row shading and achieving yield-gain.
Tracker control is simply configured with irregularity parameters that do not change with time or external influences in normal operation.

Project Cost Control

  • TeamTrack™ stands out from existing solutions that add equipment and feedback response mechanisms, that add cost and vulnerability.

 

  • TeamTrack™ enables cost reduction in earth-grading on contours and steps.

 

  • TeamTrack™ is zero maintenance and provides for hardware independent software update.

Tracker Position Control

TeamTrack™ is part of SF7 comprehensive tracker positioning control including sensors and response to cloud-cover, snow-cover, flood level, and wind regime.
TeamTrack™ firstly assures secure tracker plant operation independent of external communications, and provides secure remote data communications.

 

  • TMS monitoring of tracker position angles
  • Target Command issues tracker position angle updates
  • TeamTrack™ layout parameters are uploaded to the system during commissioning
  • Inter-row shading is avoided, and yield-gain achieved
