The solar concentrator control system is a state-of-the-art tracking system that utilizes “EZ-SunLock” technology. With this technology, the system allows for fast setup and configuration. Thousands of control systems can be deployed in a solar power plant and configured with ease. The tracking system tracks with 0.1 degree accuracy and utilizes celestial tracking algorithm.
The solar concentrator is built to communicate via Ethernet & ModBus protocol and can be interfaced with the plant’s existing monitoring system. Each solar dish controller is daisy chained to each other.
If the pressure in the primary loop drops below 7 PSI, the solar concentrator automatically moves the dish to “safety stow” position.
In an event of a power outage, a UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) moves the dish to the “safety stow” position. When the power resumes, a 1 hour lock-out ensures that the UPS is charged before it resumes auto tracking.
The SolarBeam tracks the sun in winds of up to 55km/hour. For winds that have a consistency above the default wind trigger speed, the solar concentrator tilts to its “safety stow” position.
