Thermal Analysis of Concentrated Photovoltaic System
Studying the thermal process of concentrating system could help us better understand how photovoltaic system works and seek ways to increase electricity production so as to reduce the cost of power generation. Energy transfer of concentrating photovoltaic system includes the process of light to electricity and the process of direct current to alternating current. This paper presents the factors that affect the energy transfer efficiency of the former one. And at last author points out that the key factor to increase the power production of photovoltaic system is controlling the temperatu- re of solar cell.
