Systems with Trackers in 3D mode

Recommended Posts

  Is it possible to do simulations in 3D mode with 1-axis N-S trackers in PV * SOL?

If it is not possible, could you import a ".hor" file from 3D mode to make a common simulation, considering the shading?

No, sorry.

But you could simulate the 3D environment without tracking, save the shading losses from the results and enter them as a shading percentage of your 2D simulation with tracking system. This will only cover the shading by far objects (homogeneous shading), however. A detailed shading analysis with mutual shading of the trackers for example, is not possible. But if the tracking systems have sufficient distance from each other, this won't be problematic.

Hope that helps,

kind regards,

Martin
