Advantages of Solar Tracker System

Innovation Oriented

We insist on independent research and development and focus on technological innovation of solar tracker components/parts and solar tracker system project over the years. The core team dedicate to paying attention to the real needs of users and solar tracker efficiency improvement, improving product quality and enhancing control accuracy. At present, our core products have been awarded 36 intellectual property rights ,including 5 high-tech products.

PV Tracking Algorithm

Starting from PV tracking algorithm and basing on AI+loT, we provide real-time closed-loop intelligent solar tracker components. Except for the original tracking algorithm, we add site model, cloud tracking algorithm, weather prediction algorithm, and optimize the algorithm by combining real-time irradiation data. These are applied not only to linked PV arrays but also to stand-alone PV arrays. The superiority of the algorithm has been verified by demonstration project data, which directly improves the project returns.

High Quality Guarantee

The control system for solar tracking contains multiple functions to enhance the stability of the system, including snow protection, clean mode, wind protection, stable wireless communication, etc. Each solar tracker software has gone through layers of testing and certification, such as high and low-temperature tests, vibration tests, dust tests, salt spray tests, EMC testing, low-pressure test, waterproof test, and other certification tests with international standards. Lingyang believes that superior product performance is the basis of cooperation, sincere service attitude being the essence of cooperation.

Solar Tracking System Turnkey Solutions

Solar Tracking System Turnkey Solutions

The intelligent tracking electrical control system includes an intelligent communication box NCU, solar tracker controller TCU, and a monitoring platform SCADA. NCU, the core brain of the tracking control system, connected with TCUs through LoRa or Zigbee, performs command issuance and data collection. Each TCU is responsible for the rotation of the tracking bracket motor. NCU obtains weather data from an anemorumbometer such as wind speed and direction through 485 wired in real-time; NCU communicates with SCADA through 485 wired or 4G/5G/Zigbee and other wireless to control the ZhuiKe operation and maintenance of the upper computer station. In automatic tracking mode, the system will automatically issue tracking commands according to the current trajectory of the sun and control the operation of motor actuators to ensure that the PV modules track the sun in real-time to increase the power generation.

Frequently Asked Questions of Solar Tracker


How do solar panels track the sun?


According to the local longitude, latitude, and time, the solar tracker controller automatically calculates the movement trajectory of the sun at the current moment and the azimuth and altitude angle of the location, and it also automatically issue tracking commands according to the current position of the sun and controls the motor to ensure that the relationship between the PV panel and the incidence angle of the sun is always perpendicular.


What is solar tracking system?


Our company tracking system is made of three basic units: Tracker control unit (TCU), Intelligent communication box (NCU) and solar tracker monitor (SCADA).


How to make solar tracker efficiency calculation?


Firstly, the data collected by the equipment is accurate, secondly, the prediction and optimization of the algorithm is accurate, then the control of the solar tracker controller is real-time and accurate, and finally, the action of the motor and the information feedback are accurate. These are the prerequisites and guarantees for efficient operation of the tracking control system.
