Effect of soiling in CPV systems

Vivar, Marta; Herrero, R; Anton, I; Martınez-Moreno, F; Moreton, R; Sala, G; Smeltink, John; Blakers, Andrew


The effect of soiling in flat PV modules has been already studied, causing a reduction of the electrical output of 4% on average. For CPV's, as far as soiling produces light scattering at the optical collector surface, the scattered rays should be definitively lost because they cannot be focused onto the receivers again. While the theoretical study becomes difficult because soiling is variable at different sites, it becomes easier to begin the monitoring of the real field performance of...[Show more]
