Independent Field Tests Confirm TrueCapture Boosts Solar Plant Performance

Nextracker has deployed its TrueCaptureTM smart solar tracker yield optimization and control software on gigawatts of utility solar projects around the world.

TrueCapture combines advanced sensing and machine-learning technologies to help mitigate energy losses and boost plant performance. The increased power production widens the “shoulders” of the power production curve for any given day, leading to better performance, lower LCOE, and maximized financial returns for the asset owner.

In a new case study, we present field testing data from a yearlong study conducted under the supervision of independent engineering consultant Black & Veatch at the Beacon 5 utility solar plant in California.
