The Australian National University (ANU) in collaboration with Chromasun Inc., a US-based company, is developing a new hybrid CPV-Thermal (CPV-T) micro-concentrator (MCT) system that works at a concentration ratio of between 20 to 30X. The system design and reliability testing have been integrated as concurrent processes, enabling the early optimisation of the concentrator system receiver design. The key feature of this integrated design-test procedure is that carefully selected sets of simple...[Show more]
