RETROFIT WITH DEGER TRACKERS
Are your existing solar systems underperforming with astronomically controlled trackers?
Do your tracking systems have damaged parts and is out of warranty?
Does your tracking system have not the ability to be upgraded?
Then, why do you lock yourself into obsolete trackers and have to watch as other systems outperform yours?
It’s known that MLD technology is the only one that can detect any reflection of light, even in the cloudy landscape, moving the panels to absorb as much sunlight as possible. Your system’s energy output even on a cloudy day will be significantly higher than the days before the upgrade.
Many solar trackers which are operating in the different countries have no longer official technical support, therefore their energy production may not be the best, due to malfunctions and damaged parts.
You are now able to upgrade your solar park installation from third-party tracking systems to DEGER’s unique MLD light detection technology and see your energy output increase from the very next day!
Higher Yield by Retrofitting to the MLD Technology From DEGER
One solar park in the Greek city of Oinofita consists of seven dual-axis astronomical controlled trackers in total. But the owner experienced problems with the tracking functionality of the existing systems, and due to the high maintenance expenses for astronomical tracking, the park operator Kepanape decided on retrofitting to the patented MLD technology from DEGER. The Greek branch manager Ioannis Markopoulos of Degerhellas and his team participated with this project and developed a technique for converting the astronomical systems to a sensor-controlled technology.
The solar park has an installed capacity of 100 kilowatts. To show the effect significantly, a tracker with an installed capacity of 13.4 kilowatts was chosen which was previously equipped with astronomical tracking but also encounters shadowing in the afternoon. The previous control unit was removed and equipped with two MLD sensors from Deger. The effect of the sensor-controlled tracking quickly became apparent. After just one day the yield of the solar modules was improved by 7 percent.
The patented MLD sensors from DEGER continually measure the intensity of the sun and move the PV modules into the most advantageous position.
The modules not only take the solar irradiation into account, but also, for example, light that is reflected from light surfaces, snow or rocks. From the early morning hours, the modules catch the sun light up to the evening and produce energy the whole day.
