Optimizing Your Energy Yield
TrueCapture Smart Control Technology Boosts Energy Production and Financial Returns 


Authors: Allan Daly and Venkata Abbaraju

In this paper, we focus on two leading areas for yield improvement:

  • Differential elevations from one tracker row to the next that cause either inter-row shading and/or a backtracking algorithm that is set too loosely, reducing energy yield for most of the field.
  • Diffuse light conditions that reduce energy yield when arrays follow standard astronomical tracking positions.
