Quick and simple installation
Wind tunnel test
99.5% rate of yield
It has two main product series: Vanguard 2P- independent horizontal single-axis tracker, Agile 1P- dual-row horizontal single-axis tracker;
Comprehensive and integrated design of modules and trackers
Driven by module development trends, TrinaTracker employed a comprehensive and integrated approach when designing new tracker products. Based on the updated dimensions, weight and electrical characteristics of modules, TrinaTracker has made corresponding adjustments for structural reinforcement and innovative improvement for optimal tracker design, ensuring all products’ impeccable compatibility with latest modules.
Design validation from wind tunnel test by global authoritative agencies
The complex aero elastic efforts on the solar system and the dimensional increase of modules have imposed extra difficulty on tracker reliability design. To overcome this obstacle, TrinaTracker collaborated with prestigious agencies (RWDI and CPP) to conduct a series of wind tunnel tests for continuous tracker design improvement. The optimized components and reinforced structure guarantee lower failure risk and better system stability.
The latest multidrive technology maintains good working conditions under higher external load
Multidrive, each drive device has a self-locking function, which can effectively reduce the impact of gust wind. Multidrive equivalently splits the entire tracker into multiple smaller single drive trackers whose torsion arm is shorter and resulting torsional load is lower.
Adopting a single motor mechanism where output power from primary drive is simultaneously transferred to both secondary drives via transmission bar to achieve higher system synchronization but lower failure rate than multi-motor design. Special cardan design is adopted between the transmission bars with strong rectifying ability and easy installation.
Equipped with patented structural component
The spherical bearing has a self-adjusting function, which can automatically rectify deviations caused by installation, correct errors generated during EPC installation and construction, and alleviate the harm caused by uneven foundation settlement during the life cycle of the tracker.
SuperTrack intelligent tracking algorithm increases power generation
TrinaTracker is one of the first vendors that offers optimizing tracking algorithm for ‘bifacial + tracking’ systems in the industry, focusing on capturing the combination of direct illumination + rear sunlight reflection + rear scattering irradiance. Based on the patented model of Trina Solar’s bifacial irradiation technique combined with advanced information collection technology and artificial smart algorithms, SuperTrack dynamically optimizes the tracking angle according to the real-time weather conditions and system parameters which will ultimately realize a substantial yield gain in bifacial applications.
