Unlocking efficiency: TrinaTracker smart upgrades revitalize solar power plant

By TrinaTracker

TrinaTracker has drawn on its expertise and digital intelligence technology to carry out a landmark technological transformation at a plant in China’s Shandong province, which had been suffering efficiency bottlenecks due to aging technology.

The core of the upgrade involved replacement of the plant’s outdated electronic control system with TrinaTracker’s self-developed TCUs and NCUs. This overcame communications barriers and improved the security defense mechanism. The advanced stow strategy automatically activates when high winds strike, intelligently adjusting the tracker based on real-time meteorological data to mitigate risks posed by poor weather. In addition, the TCU identifies motor overloads and triggers the stow program, preventing structural damage caused by overcurrent and ensuring long-term stability and safety.

To unlock the plant’s power generation potential, TrinaTracker integrated its SuperTrack smart algorithm, equipped with Smart Backtracking Algorithm (SBA) and Smart Tracking Algorithm (STA). SBA uses a patented mini-shading model to construct a 3D map using terrain data, enabling self-learning and self-optimization for real-time sensing of parameters and maximizing tracker advantages. The STA relies on a Bifacial Irradiance Model to determine the optimal tracker angle for cloudy and rainy conditions, minimizing rotation and extending operational hours.

In the rapidly evolving PV industry, technological innovation is the driving force propelling the sector forward. TrinaTracker’s Smart Control System is deployed globally, with contracts exceeding 6.2GW across 16 countries and regions.
