BasBemelmans Posted February 16, 2021 Report Share Posted February 16, 2021 Hello, Today I tried playing with the azimuth orientation of a circular solar park my company has in development. Basically, I rotated the configuration and generated hourly values to compare. I got the following (see figure). All numbers are grid feed-in (kWh). I have two questions arising from these numbers: Generally, the yield looks approximately the same during the day for all configurations (not as much deviations as I would expect), which is weird I would say. I would expect that for example a 270 degrees orientation (so the panels aimed in east direction), the grid feed-in would be bigger in the morning than in the afternoon. Does anyone of you maybe understand what's going on? I also noticed that for a south orientated configuration, the specific yield and hourly grid feed-in numbers are lower compared to 150/210 degrees orientation (especially in winter, first picture), how can that be? The Spec. Annual Yield for the 180 degrees orientation was 890 kWh/kWp, while for the 150/210 degrees orientation it was 950 kWh/kWp. I would expect a south configuration always to have a bigger yield. All configurations have the some properties (except the orientation of course). The configuration is also circular, so rotating has no effect on the used space. Some properties of the configurations: - Inclination 30 degrees - Number of vertical modules: 1 - Depth of row: 0.863 m - Mounting Support Clearance: 0.937 m - PV generator output: 629.68 kWp (1852 panels) Thanks in advance for the help!
