Direct measurement and simulation techniques for analysis of radiation flux on a linear PV concentrator

Coventry, Joseph; Blakers, Andrew


For a linear reflective photovoltaic concentrator, small regions of low radiation flux can significantly reduce the output current of an entire array. Therefore, understanding the causes of light non-uniformities along the focal line is crucial in the design of a trough concentrator. Typically, the flux profile is dependent on factors such as the mirror shape accuracy, gaps between mirrors and shading due to receiver supports. Radiation flux profiles have been measured on the combined heat and...[Show more]
