The driving force… Capture the sun … Every day, the sun sends immeasurable amounts of energy to the and servicing effort. Thus with drive solutions from Framo Morat, earth, though we have to ‘capture’ this energy first in order to be at the end of the day both the energy balance and the cost able to use it. Drive systems from Framo Morat ensure that this is achieved as effectively as possible. With both photovoltaic modules and solar thermal energy sys­ tems, the aim of achieving maximum energy exploitation through the course of the day requires precise alignment to the sun. Solar tracking...

A turn for the better. Stay on the sunny side with our 1- and 2-axis PV tracking systems. Azimuth and elevation adjustment Solar cells work most effectively with vertical light incidence, so the module’s energy yield can be optimized with 2-axis adjustment. Whereby east-west alignment, following the path of the sun, is described as the azimuth adjustment, and the vertical align­ ment according to the position of the sun above the horizon is called the elevation adjustment. Azimuth adjustment Elevation adjustment • rom 0.01 r. p.m. F • otational clearance R from 2 angular minutes 10 tons •...

Drive solutions for photovoltaic systems 1- or 2-axis tracking systems are used to Tracking drive for PV plants increase the effectiveness of photovoltaic plants. They align the PV module horizontally and vertically to the sun (azimuth and elevation adjustment). Framo Morat has developed special drive systems for this purpose – in which all components, from the drive housing to the cable, have been specifically designed for harsh outdoor operation. • zimuth adjustment through A self-locking worm gears • levation adjustment through electromechanical E linear actuators • ow power requirement...

Precise – to the minute. Our highly accurate CSP mirror adjustments provide you with a rich crop of sunshine. Parabolic channel collectors Solar tower plant with heliostats Fresnel collectors In parabolic channel collectors the incidental sunlight is directed towards a fixed absorption tube (through which a thermo-oil is flowing) via a parabolic curved mirror. The oil that evaporates as a result of the consolidated energy runs a current generator. A singleaxis tracking mechanism is used to adjust the para­ bolic channel collectors (arranged in a north-south alignment) from east to west. In...

Even minor deviations of a few angular minutes can impair the solar energy yield so that particularly precise and reliable tracking systems are required for CSP applications. The position of Fresnel reflectors must be...
