Jan 18, 2021 12:19 PM ET
  • Trina Solar, a leading worldwide PV and also wise energy overall solution service provider, has actually released the TrinaTracker Intelligent Tracking Technology White Paper on SuperTrack.

According to the white paper, SuperTrack formula has three distinctive technical features, including both clever tracking and also backtracking innovations, "Broadcast + Polling" interaction technique, as well as extreme climate protection methods. Certified by the authoritative third-party company CGC (China General Certification) in November 2020, SuperTrack can boost power gain by 3.08% over the typical expensive algorithm.

SuperTrack decreases the LCOE efficiently

This white paper research studies the development of solar trackers, present difficulties of tracking modern technology, technical attributes of SuperTrack and also future leads to explore brand-new criteria for the industry.

Under the sector fad of constant decline of LCOE (Leveraged price of electricity) of photovoltaic power, the tracking modern technology can push the reduction even more. SuperTrack, a brand-new intelligent tracking modern technology individually created by Trina Solar, offseting the shortage of the typical astronomical algorithms, will adequately take the climate right into consideration, minimize the shading loss because of the position of front and rear modules during the backtracking stages, and completely consider the overall generation performance of the bifacial modules, which will additionally launch the potential of trackers and increase its power generation gain in addition to decrease the LCOE efficiently.

SuperTrack attains a 3.08% rise of power gain

According to the white paper, SuperTrack is equipped with 3 core technologies, 2 core wise algorithms, "broadcast + ballot" interaction control method and severe climate security strategy.

First of all, with 2 core clever algorithms, SuperTrack guarantees that the tracking system produces optimal power any time. Essentially, based upon the trademarked bifacial version technology, climate condition, and system parameters, SuperTrack can deep-learn high-diffuse irradiance weather condition and power generation qualities of bifacial modules to dynamically accomplish the optimum tracking angle to continually boost energy yield. On the other hand based upon Trina Solar's Slope Model and also semantic network algorithm, SuperTrack optimizes the tracking angle for intricate surface with three-dimensional modeling of the surface as well as iterative simulation, the drone sensing unit modern technology for twin verification, and utilize the Decision Model to establish the ideal tracking angle group with the best output performance.

Second of all, SuperTrack functions efficient and also steady interaction. SuperTrack adopts wireless communication and self-powered innovation to minimize the use of communication cords, power line, relevant wiring and also labor prices. In particular, the "program + polling" communication control technique is innovatively presented to make sure interaction effectiveness as well as stability.

Last yet not the least, SuperTrack enables security techniques in severe climate. Counting on the intelligent control of the controller, SuperTrack incorporates multiple extreme climate defense strategies targeting solid wind, heavy snow, and hailstorm. SuperTrack additionally combines wind tunnel testing and also CFD simulation to boost the integrity as well as O&M effectiveness of the tracker. SuperTrack incorporates the features of smart tracking and also backtracking, which significantly improves the processing ability to respond to various climates and also complex surfaces, and also even more improves the trackers' possibility in power generation.

" Along with the large application of bifacial modules, SuperTrack will certainly help the trackers attain a further jump in energy gain, which will accelerate the reduction of the LCOE and improve the application of trackers in PV industry in the future." said by Duan Shunwei, Head of TrinaTracker business system of Trina Solar.

Zhou Gang, General Manager of Solar Energy Division of CGC, clarified, "CGC and also Trina solar assessed the expediency of SuperTrack formula at the initial stage of the project, upon which CGC completely acknowledged the advanced nature of SuperTrack and made a targeted empirical service. Throughout the monitoring process, CGC validated SuperTrack's data precision and also performance. "
