A hybrid CPV-Thermal (CPV-T) micro-concentrator (MCT) system has been constructed. The MCT is a fully sealed, light-weight structure with a low wind-load factor. It incorporates modified one-sun solar cells operating at around 15 suns optical concentration using a novel ultra-lightweight Fresnel array with closed loop tracking to produce electricity and thermal energy suitable for generating hot water or running absorption chillers. Preliminary electrical and thermal performance data will be...[Show more]
