Mounting systems for photovoltaic modules
Solar panels are the bright future of the entire planet. The whole world is trying to transfer electricity production from environmentally polluted, inefficient and low-tech stations to solar power as quickly as possible.
The solar panel mounting system is quite diverse. This gives each future owner of such power plants a wide choice. Now we will focus on the types of mounting systems for photovoltaic modules (solar panels) and tell you about their main advantages and disadvantages.
Concept and types of photovoltaic module mounting system
Solar panel mounting systems are a set of components integrated into a structure that provides reliable mounting, fixing and control of solar panels. The mounting system can be very different, because they are divided by functional purpose. These structures are made of aluminum and steel, which gives very high reliability and guarantees a long service life of the system.
As we have already noted, the functional purpose of solar panel mounting systems is divided into types:
- Static of the mounting system of the FEM
- Dynamic systems (trackers)
- Static solar panel mounting systems
A static system is a system of solar panels that receives solar energy in a stationary form and generates it into electricity. Static mounting is more common on the territory of Europe due to its reliability and cost. The reliability of this solar panel mounting system is very high, because if installed correctly, taking into account all climatic and geographical conditions, it will last for more than 20 years.
The correct installation of a solar power system also determines its efficiency, so we recommend contacting professionals and being confident in your future. Static mounting systems for photovoltaic modules are divided into ground and roof systems.
Ground systems are systems that are designed to be installed in the ground. The effective and optimal tilt angle of solar panels is calculated immediately during the design process. The advantage of this panel mounting system is that it can be installed anywhere and on any plane.
Dynamic solar panel mounting systems
The dynamic system is a more high-tech and efficient solar panel installation system. Its uniqueness lies in the automatic adaptation of panels to accommodate the Sun. The solar panel system will monitor the position of the Sun and get the highest possible performance indicators. Also, this system is quite well protected from weather conditions, if necessary, it will adapt to bad climatic conditions (snow, wind).
Dynamic mounting systems for photovoltaic modules are divided into:
Uniaxial: These mounts allow you to rotate the solar panels vertically. This opens up great opportunities for systems that are installed in difficult geographical conditions and insufficient soil moisture. Before commissioning, such a system must be adapted to specific operating conditions. If you use the services of specialists, there will be no problems for them.
Biaxial: This system of panel mounting gives even higher efficiency of the previous one, because it automatically moves not only vertically, but also horizontally, and generally eliminates any losses in obtaining electricity. This system will receive approximately 40% more electricity per static panel mounting system.
