Title
(EN) SOLAR MODULE TRACKER SYSTEM OPTIMIZED FOR BIFACIAL SOLAR MODULES
(FR) SYSTÈME DE SUIVEUR DE MODULE SOLAIRE OPTIMISÉ POUR DES MODULES SOLAIRES BIFACIAUX
Abstract
(EN)
A solar tracker including solar modules which include, a frame and a plurality of bifacial solar cells supported by the frame. The solar modules also including a gap formed between two or more of the solar cells, the gap being formed proximate a centerline of the solar modules and configured to a allow passage of light from a first side of the solar modules to a second side of a solar modules, where the light passing through the gap is reflected back onto the plurality of bifacial solar cells and converted to electrical energy.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un suiveur solaire comprenant des modules solaires qui comprennent un cadre et une pluralité de cellules solaires bifaciales supportées par le cadre. Les modules solaires comprennent également un espace formé entre deux cellules solaires ou plus, l'espace étant formé à proximité d'une ligne centrale des modules solaires et conçu pour permettre le passage de la lumière d'un premier côté des modules solaires à un second côté des modules solaires, la lumière traversant l'espace étant réfléchie de nouveau sur la pluralité de cellules solaires bifaciales et convertie en énergie électrique.
