Large-Scale Ground Photovoltaic Bracket Selection Guide

In the context of today’s energy transition, solar energy as a clean and renewable form of energy utilisation is receiving widespread attention and rapid development worldwide. One of the core components of photovoltaic systems – the support structure – directly affects the operational efficiency and stability of solar panels. For large-scale ground photovoltaic bracket, selecting the appropriate type of support structure is a critical step in improving the overall performance and economic benefits of the system. In this guide, we will look at the different types of solar supports suitable for large ground stations, including their structural characteristics, applicable scenarios, economics and technical requirements, with the aim of providing investors, engineers and project developers with a comprehensive selection guide. Then, let us enter this field of innovation and cutting-edge technology together, find the most suitable solar ground mount solution for your project, and together promote the development of green energy.

A-style Ground Photovoltaic Brackets: A Simple and Efficient Choice

A-style photovoltaic brackets play a crucial role in photovoltaic systems, with their simple structure resembling the letter “A.” They typically feature a one-to-one inclined support design, with the apex pointing towards the sun, providing stable support for solar panels. This design facilitates the natural sliding of rainwater and debris, reducing maintenance needs, and offers a quick installation process, short engineering cycle, and low cost.

The straightforward design of the A-style bracket also facilitates rapid installation, reducing engineering time and costs. While its adjustability is somewhat limited, a reasonable tilt angle design can still ensure satisfactory sunlight capture. A-style brackets are well-suited to small to medium-sized photovoltaic systems, such as household roofs and small farms, particularly in instances where budgets are constrained.

While A-style brackets perform well in terms of wind and snow load, additional reinforcement may be necessary in areas with strong winds and heavy snowfall. Overall, A-style photovoltaic brackets offer an economical and practical solution, making them suitable for small to medium-sized photovoltaic projects.

N-style Ground Photovoltaic Brackets: A Balance Between Stability and Efficiency

N-style photovoltaic brackets, with their distinctive ‘N’ shape, comprise two inclined supports with the apex facing upwards. This innovative design provides not only significant stability but also optimises sunlight capture, enhancing energy absorption efficiency. The distinctive geometric shape of the N-style bracket enables rainwater and debris to flow off naturally, while reducing wind pressure on the solar panels.

N-style brackets are designed to withstand wind and snow loads, with structural designs that consider wind impacts, good air circulation, and the dissipation of wind pressure. Furthermore, some N-style bracket designs allow for adjustable tilt angles, enabling them to adapt to seasonal variations in the sun’s altitude, thus optimising energy output.

N-style brackets are widely used in commercial and industrial-scale photovoltaic power stations, particularly in locations with ample open space, such as fields, idle land, or large rooftops. The effective design of N-style bracket systems can lead to improvements in energy yield, reductions in maintenance costs, and enhancements to the overall lifecycle efficiency of the system.

W-style Ground Photovoltaic Brackets: Ultimate Pursuit of Stability

W-style photovoltaic brackets, with their distinctive ‘W’ shape comprising three inclined supports, offer unparalleled stability, making them an ideal choice for regions with high winds. The triple-rod design of the W-style bracket provides enhanced structural stability and effective wind pressure distribution, offering protection for solar panels in high-wind conditions.

In terms of wind and snow load, W-style brackets demonstrate exceptional performance. The tri-rod structure of these brackets effectively withstands challenges from strong winds and accumulated snow. While the installation process may be more complex, the use of standardised components can streamline the installation process. W-style brackets also allow for the adjustment of the tilt angle according to geographical location and seasonal changes, thus enabling the maximisation of energy output.

W-style brackets are particularly well-suited to large photovoltaic power stations and regions with high winds, ensuring the stable operation and long-term durability of photovoltaic systems. Their high stability and wind and snow load performance make them an ideal choice for photovoltaic projects that prioritize ultimate stability.

GS-style Ground Photovoltaic Brackets: An Intelligent Choice for Efficient Solar Energy Capture

GS-style photovoltaic brackets, which feature a design similar to satellite receiving antennas’ “dish” supports, include a north-south horizontal axis and an east-west inclined axis. This innovative structure enables adjustments to be made based on seasonal and geographical variations, thus ensuring optimal solar radiation reception efficiency.

GS-style brackets are designed to withstand wind and snow loads, with structural designs that consider wind impacts and reduce wind resistance through thoughtful aerodynamic designs. The height adjustability of GS-style brackets is their most significant feature, enabling precise adjustments to the tilt angle according to seasonal changes in the sun’s altitude, thereby optimising year-round energy production.

GS-style brackets are particularly well-suited to commercial and industrial photovoltaic power stations that require high energy capture efficiency, significantly enhancing the energy output of the system. Their technology is well-established, particularly in terms of tracking the sun’s altitude, although it does come at a relatively higher cost, which is primarily used for large-scale photovoltaic projects.

Comprehensive Analysis

When selecting photovoltaic brackets, it is essential to conduct a cost analysis and wind and snow load analysis. A-style brackets are a popular choice for smaller projects with limited budgets due to their low cost and moderate stability. N-style brackets offer a balance between stability and efficiency, making them suitable for a range of applications. W-style brackets are the preferred choice in regions with high winds due to their exceptional stability. Meanwhile, GS-style brackets are well-suited to large-scale photovoltaic projects due to their high adjustability and excellent energy capture efficiency.

Each bracket type offers distinct advantages and is suited to specific applications. It is therefore essential to select the most appropriate type of photovoltaic bracket, taking into account the specific requirements of the project, the geographical location, climate conditions and budget, in order to ensure the efficiency and economy of the photovoltaic system.
