In the era of large modules, How Antai Solar’s innovative tracker compatible with 210 Ultra high power modules?
18 Mar 2021

With the rapid development of PV capacity in Africa, the proportion of bifacial modules in the African market is also gradually increasing. The solar tracking system solves the obstruction of power generation which is happened on using bifacial modules on the fixed mounting system.

The switch to larger modules and the combination of bifacial modules +trackers have been exciting trends in the solar industry.

The advantage of the 210 module is that the voltage is lower at the same power, and thus a single string can achieve greater power, reducing the cost of PV DC cables and the corresponding line installation, thereby reducing BOS costs and LCOE.

But on the other hand, the length of the 670W module based on the 210 battery is nearly 2.4 meters length and the width is about 1.3 meters. The length of the array of the 3-string module (36 blocks/string) may reach or exceed 140 meters. The windward area is greatly increased, and the wind load and snow load need to be recalculated, and the traditional solar tracker obviously cannot be adapted. So What kind of solar tracker shall we choose to ensure the stable and reliable operation of the system?

Antaisolar ‘s Helios and Clytie series solar tracker are good answers. Kou Juan, deputy general manager of Antaisolar, said that we are the first domestic solar tracker supplier that uses multi-point driving technology to make grid connection. Our mature and stable multi-point drive technology helps the solar tracker to achieve the perfect combination of 600W+ modules. In the application, you can choose 1P or 2P configuration, it supports both PV string power and AC power supply. Up to ±60° tracking to maximize utilization hours and power generation. And it has been unanimously recognized by many customers at home and abroad.

It’s reported that Antaisolar Clytie S1 and Clytie S2 utilized patent U-shape torque tube with less material and better performance than the conventional square-shape and round-shape one. As the best solutions for bi-facial modules, Helios D1 and Helios D2 adopt patent purlin combination to improve the component security and save installation time. Multi-point drive mode can protect the torque tube and ensure the product stability, solving the instability problem of conventional 2P tracking system under extreme weather conditions.

In order to ensure the stability and reliability of system, Antaisolar cooperated with the global authority CPP to conduct wind tunnel tests on its solar tracker. The results show that it has successfully passed relevant tests and is already at the industry’s leading level in terms of reliability. Kou Juan, deputy general manager of Antaisolar, said: “At present, Antai has a technical R&D team of nearly 80 people, as top technical innovation talents of the industry, the core members have been engaged in the R&D of solar tracker for more than 15 years. We hope that through every step of innovation toward our corporate vision of “Backbone for Solar World”, and push China Photovoltaic to the world.”
