Trina Solar Launches Agile 1P Dual Row Tracker globally, driving up energy gain by 8%

Trina Solar Co., Ltd (“Trina Solar”), a leading global PV and smart energy total solution provider, announced the official worldwide launch of the TrinaTracker Agile 1P Dual Row on April 15 (4pm CET). Agile 1P tracker is fully compatible with ultra-high power modules ranging from 400W to 670W+. The Agile series is a new member to the TrinaTracker family after the Vanguard series launched in December, which further enriches the trackers application scenarios and upgrades TrinaTracker solutions.

At the launch conference, Duan Shunwei, head of Tracker business unit at Trina Solar and Antonio Moralejo Gil, head of Product & Engineering department for TrinaTracker, presented the new product comprehensively. Agile 1P adopts the 1P Dual Row design with four key technology advantages: higher reliability, greater power generation, optimized BOS and enhanced adaptability. SuperTrack algorithm delivers an extra yield gain up to 8%. César Hidalgo, Principal Engineer of solar systems at DNV, elaborated on the research methodology used in tracker bankability report and explained that both TrinaTracker’s “Vanguard” and “Agile” tracker systems had done the technology review (bankability) by DNV.

Agile 1P has officially gone into mass production since the launch date. Up to now, the global installation capacity of TrinaTracker has exceeded 5 GW, with 8 GW annual production capacity on trackers in 2021.

Agile 1P’s enhanced reliability is guaranteed by three innovative technologies

The new Agile 1P tracker can achieve optimal adaptability and reliability in compatibility with 600W+ ultra-high power modules. Mr. Gil revealed that CPP, a world-renowned authoritative wind tunnel test organization, put the Agile 1P tracker through a set of comprehensive wind tunnel tests including dynamic and static as well as full aeroelastic, simulating operation under actual condition. Upon these tests, TrinaTracker kept optimizing the tracker design to ensure all the components of tracker system to boast higher reliability and enhanced adaptability.

Agile 1P leverages the innovative multi-drive (dual-slewing) system and exclusively worldwide patented spherical bearing to improve the overall stability of tracker system, effectively reducing the system aeroelastic effect, improving load transmission efficiency, avoiding rotation error and enhancing the overall structure. The spherical bearing can minimize the structure stress and deformation and further improve reliability and adaptability in complex terrains. In addition, Agile 1P is equipped with sophisticated stow strategy, preventing the tracker from structural failure in gusty wind and strengthening system reliability.

Installation capacity increases by 15.6%, SuperTrack algorithm drives up 8% power gain

The Dual-Row design of Agile 1P shortens the tracker length to only 72 meters, enabling installation of up to 120 modules per tracker, and achieving higher installation capacity under the same layout by 15.6%.

The intelligent “SuperTrack” algorithm can increase the Agile 1P’s total power generation by up to 8%. With the cleaning robot effectively eliminating sands and dust on modules, system power generation can be enhanced by more than 10%.
