Designing for the Wind
Interactive White Paper: Using Dynamic Wind Analysis and Protective Stow Strategies to Lower Solar Tracker Lifetime Costs
Authors: Alex Roedel and Stuart Upfill-Brown
This paper was developed with solar power plant developers, asset owners, EPCs, and independent engineers in mind. Here are a few of many of the topics we discuss:
- Dynamic effects of wind on PV structures
- Cost of downtime: is it a race to the bottom?
- Tracker Architecture: stowing and wind effect analysis
