The solar tracking system is a device which orientates solar concentrating systems in order to allow the focusing of the solar radiation on the receiver along the day. The accuracy of the solar tracker is a key parameter when compared to the acceptance angle of the concentrator in order to maximize the optical efficiency. The Taars solar heating plant was put into operation in Denmark in summer 2015 with a PTC solar field. The accuracy of the tracking system of the 6 PTC rows has been studied.
