-Fraunhofer CSET monitoring the performance of installation on top of experimental modular timber construction
LOCATION, DATE: LONGi Solar’s bifacial modules have been installed on top of an innovative, modular timber tower in Chile.
In total, 15 of LONGi’s 60 cell mono-PERC bifacial (LR6-60BP-300M modules) have been installed. Around 1.5kW faces north with a tilt of around 33% with 3kW installed flat.
Fraunhofer Center for Solar Energy Technologies (CSET) will monitor the performance of the system, with four reference cells (2x POA 2x albedo) installed in a coplanar fashion for measuring both plane of array and albedo irradiation of the two aforementioned subsystems (tilted and flat).
The installation was performed by ICG and Fleischmann, national companies that work in solar energy, with sponsorship from the distribution grid operator Chilquinta.
It has already been connected to the national grid system and at the time of writing was awaiting its final net-billing permits by the distribution grid operator.
