Abstract: Cable based mounting of bifacial modules in a vertical or in a horizontal orientation is demonstrated, also on top of carports. Yield gains of 8% on a clear sky day for fixed vertically mounted bifacial modules were measured, together with higher yield at lower irradiance levels, by the use of the new fast module tracker. First results of applying the commercial tool PVSYST lead to annual additional electricity production in Switzerland of about 15% if the bifacial modules are tracked at two fixed positions relative to fixed mounted 30 ° tilted south oriented modules. These simulation show relevant deviations to the measured daily power production characteristics and will be improved in a future.
