Yokogawa Curve Fitting for Renewable Energy Tutorial Part 3 of 3

Yokogawa Network Solutions presents a tutorial on basic curve fitting or function finding as a replacement for look-up tables and linear interpolation of intermediate values. This set of videos is intended as a supplement to the original paper: "Simplified Curve Fitting for Renewable Energy Data Collection and Control". This video is a practical demonstration of implementing the function generated in the first video for angular displacement of the heat transfer fluid receiver on a concentrated solar thermal power collector (parabolic trough) . The function is implemented in a Yokogawa HXS10 Solar Tracking Controller to accurately correlate the inclinometer reading to true angle of the heat transfer fluid receiver.
