Designing CPV Receivers With Reliability: Early Evaluation of Components

Vivar, Marta; Everett, Vernie; Walters, Daniel; Harvey, Judith; Van Scheppingen, Ruud; Surve, Sachin; Muric-Nesic, Jelena; Blakers, Andrew


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 have been integrated as a concurrent process, enabling early optimisation of the concentrator design. The key feature of this procedure is that a carefully selected set of simple tests can be conducted concurrently with the design of the concentrator module, without introducing time delays on the module...[Show more]
