Ray tracing modeling has been used to calculate the performance of static concentrator modules with a geometric concentration ratio of 2 and incorporating very narrow (1-2 mm), long and bifacial cells. The modules utilize either a v-groove or a lambertian rear reflector. It is shown that the use of very narrow cells allows a performance improvement of 5% or more compared to structures incorporating wider cells, in the case of v-groove reflectors. The averaged yearly performance for both types...[Show more]
