Solar actuators, the brains and brawn behind solar trackers

Can you tell solar actuation systems apart? Knowing what’s in an actuator and how it’s tested is paramount.

Optimizing photovoltaic grid integration through active power management

PV systems, surpassing minimum load demands in various regions, necessitate innovative grid integration measures. Active power management (APM), notably curtailment, emerges as a powerful solution here. By actively managing power peaks, PV systems can unlock new possibilities, contribute to grid stability, and enhance their overall value. The new IEA-PVPS Task 14 report encourages a shift in perspective, urging DSOs to explore the potential of APM instead of traditional grid expansion methods.
