Method for controlling the orientation of a solar tracker based on map models

Abstract : The invention relates to a method for controlling the orientation of a single-axis solar tracker (1) that can be oriented about an axis of rotation (A), in which successive control phases are carried out in a repeated manner. According to the invention, the following successive steps are performed in each control phase: a) observing the cloud cover above the solar tracker (1); b) comparing the cloud cover observed with cloud cover models stored in a database, each cloud cover model being associated with an orientation set point value for the solar tracker; c) matching the cloud cover observed with a cloud cover model; and d) controlling the orientation of the solar tracker by applying the orientation set point value to the cloud cover model selected in step c). The present invention is suitable for use in the field of solar trackers.
