Tracking versus fixed flat-plate arrays: Experimental results of one year`s operation at Adrano pilot plant

Technical Report:

Abstract

To investigate the cost/benefits of sun-tracking photovoltaic (PV) systems as compared with fixed arrays, an experiment is under way at the Adrano PV plant in Italy to look into the performance of actually operating systems. This paper reports both theoretical evaluations on energy gain achievable with tracking PV plants and actual data collected over a year of continuous operation. Such data allow an analysis of financial viability, herein presented for a particular PV installation.
