As solar goes mainstream with record utility-scale deployments globally, the importance of comprehensive wind engineering research, testing and analysis of smart solar tracker design continues to grow. A year after NEXTracker publicly shared half a decade of pioneering work developed in collaboration with CPP Wind Engineering Consultants, other solar tracker companies have also begun investing in wind research. However, the absence of well-defined structural codes for PV installations has led to conflicting wind testing methodologies, mitigation features and strategies across the industry.
