    Solar concentrators provide high energy density solar radiation to a target receiver, thus raising the temperature of the target. Depending on the degree of concentration, the optical properties (solar absorption and radiation) of the target surface, and the target's cooling rate, the following may occur. UNESCO - EOLSS SAMPLE CHAPTER SOLAR ENERGY CONVERSION AND PHOTOENERGY SYSTEMS – High Temperature Solar Concentrators - Robert Pitz- Paal surface area. Concentration of radiation aims at increasing the energy density E of the radiant energy, in order to allow a better use of Size: 2MB. Imaging concentrators are used to achieve the highest temperatures that are currently achievable with a solar thermal system. Imaging concentrators enable a very large aperture area with a small absorber area, effectively reducing thermal losses at high temperatures. Book chapter: Duffie, J.A. A luminescent solar concentrator (LSC) is a device for concentrating radiation, solar radiation in particular, to produce electricity. Luminescent solar concentrators operate on the principle of collecting radiation over a large area, converting it by luminescence (specifically by fluorescence).

This chapter discusses the electrostatic removal of particles and its applications to self-cleaning solar panels and solar concentrators. Potential applications of self-cleaning solar panels in PV systems, particularly in arid and semi-arid regions, are included, and the economic advantage in payback for the added cost is examined in this chapter.

Solar concentrators put one of these lenses on top of every solar cell. This makes much more focused light come to each solar cell, making the cells vastly more efficient. Concentrators work best when there is a single source of light and the concentrator can be pointed right at it.

This is ideal in space, where the Sun is a single light source. International Conference on Solar Concentrators for the Generation of Electricity or Hydrogen Book of Abstracts Conference Chairs: R.

McConnell, M. Symko-Davies, and H. Hayden Double Tree Paradise Valley Scottsdale, Arizona May 1 – 5, The use of solar energy requires optimizing each part of a photovoltaic system: collection optics, the photovoltaic array, switches, controllers, current inverters, storage devices and tracking mechanics.

A vast amount of research is currently focused on perfecting each of these areas. Several types of solar concentrator technology are transitioning from the R&D stage to commercial deployment. Epiphany's patent pending solar concentration technology allows for mass production of high quality, dual-axis tracking concentrators without the need for specialized equipment or exotic materials.

Luminescent solar concentrators operate on the principle of collecting radiation over a large area, converting it by luminescence (specifically by fluorescence) and directing the generated radiation into a relatively small output target.

Throughout the recent centuries, the limits of using energy resources due to the cost and environmental issues became one of the scientists&#x; concerns.

Because of the huge amount of energy received by the Earth from the sun, the application of photovoltaic solar cells has become popular in the world.
