Title (EN) TORQUE TUBE COUPLER
(FR) COUPLEUR DE TUBE DE COUPLE
Abstract:
(EN) A solar-tracking photovoltaic (PV) system having several PV modules mounted on a torque tube is described. The torque tube may include several sections joined by a torque tube coupler. For example, the torque tube coupler may having a medial section and end sections to join to the torque tube sections. The medial section and the torque tube sections may have a same outer diameter.
(FR) Selon l'invention, un système photovoltaïque (PV) à suivi solaire comprend plusieurs modules PV montés sur un tube de couple. Le tube de couple peut comprendre plusieurs sections reliées par un coupleur de tube de couple. Par exemple, le coupleur de tube de couple peut présenter une section médiane et des sections d'extrémité destinées à être reliées aux sections de tube de couple. La section médiane et les sections de tube de couple peuvent présenter un même diamètre extérieur.
