Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2013006054A1] A solar power installation (10) comprises a collector (12), a converter (16) and a support (24), wherein the collector (12) and the converter (16) are arranged to rotate together about a substantially fixed panning axis (P) with respect to the support (24) and the collector (12) is arranged to be adjustable independently of the converter (16) about an elevation axis (E) with respect to the support (24). As a result of the independent motion of the collector (12), a significant simplification in the design may be achieved and there may also be a reduction in energy required to operate the tracking system. The collector (12) and converter (16) together may be balanced for rotation about the panning axis (P) with minimal power requirement.
