1-AXIS SINGLE ROW HORIZONTAL TRACKER HYPERION-SR®
Hyperion-SR® is undoubtedly the most advanced single row horizontal tracker on the market. Main features are minimum number of piles per MW, self-powered operation, wireless communications, extended slope tolerances and sophisticated optimized.
This type of tracking system can increase the power output by 27% compared to ground-mounted fixed structure systems, depending on the latitude. The weight of the structure has been significantly reduced while the optimised design allows wider rotation angles (+/- 55 degrees), In case of severe weather conditions, the tracker automaticaly moves in stowing position in less than 3 minutes.
CUSTOM MADE SOLUTION FOR BOTH 1Kv AND 1,5 kV SYSTEMS
Electrical and mechanical co-optimization in any project is possible. The Hyperion-SR® design can be adapted to client’s needs and the local regulations as per project’s location. Installation training and comission services can be provided at no cost*.
HIGHER SPECIFIC POWER
Tracker’s diamensions can be extended featuring up to 90 modules per row for 1.5kV DC systems (versions with 80 modules per row for 1kV DC system available) increasing land coverage up to 6%.
REDUCED COSTS FOR ELECTRICAL BALANCE OF THE SYSTEM
The self-powered actuator renters the AC power unnecessary. Each row integrates an advanced controller equipped with electronical devices such as UPS, inclinometer and motor current monitor sending its data through a wireless mesh network (zigbee). Raising the system voltage to 1,500 volts allows for 50% longer strings thus reducing the number of strings for the same amount of power which eliminates almost 30% of the related cabling and combiner boxes permiting fewer inverters per project.
Powered by Mecasolar self-powered motor drive, each row consists an independent tracker minimizing the mobile parts and therefore the Hyperion®-SR assembly complexity simplifying the installation process.
ON-SITE WELDINGS NOT REQUIRED
The entire tracker can be assembled with fastening devices, therefore on-site weldings are NOT required, reducing workforce cost and mounting time. The ergonomy of the design ensures minimum equipment and installation effort.
The Hyperion®-SR has been carefully designed as to be perfectly adapted to different types of terrain (including uneven terrain up to 12% inclination). Specially designed features to afford extended tolerances for easier installation plus a variety of different types of foundations permiting reduction of civil works. All anchoring systems are available.
Lubricant free polymer bearings. The design height of the entire system makes the structure accesible for maintenance and cleaning. The independent rows allow accesible and easy cleaning services.
The sophisticated engineering design contains a reduced number of moving parts, diminishing the tracking error and maximizing outcome by working in parallel with an advanced astronomical software system.
This project has received a grant co-financed at 50% by the European Regional Development Fund through the Operational Program FEDER 2014-2020 of Navarra.
