In solar photovoltaic power generation, in order to maintain a certain angle between the photovoltaic panel and the sun's rays and maximize the absorption of solar radiation, a slewing drive/slew drive is needed to adjust the horizontal rotation and pitch angle of the photovoltaic panel.
The pitch angle of the heliostat is adjusted with a linear actuator, the slewing bearing is used to support the entire heliostat rotating unit, at the same time is also responsible for adjusting the azimuth angle.
Reaching up to 120kW, SolarEdge's Three Phase Inverters with Synergy Technology are designed to provide more power and higher profitability in large-scale commercial and industrial (C&I) PV installations.
