The Australian National University (ANU) is developing a new hybrid CPV-Thermal micro-concentrator (MCT) system working at a concentration ratio of 20 to 30X. System design and reliability testing have been integrated as concurrent processes, enabling the early optimisation of the concentrator system design. The key feature of this integrated design-test procedure is that carefully selected sets of simple tests can be conducted concurrently with the design of the concentrator module, without...[Show more]
