Demonstration of a 33% efficient Cassegrainian Solar Module

by JX Crystals  (Aug. 28, 2014)

Abstract The Cassegrainian solar concentrator module concept we shall describe here uses a primary and a dichroic secondary mirror to split the solar spectrum into two parts and direct the infrared and near visible portions of the spectrum to two separate cell locations. An efficiency of 32.9% (STC) is reported measured outdoors for a solar ...

Design, development and simulation of PC-based scheme for characterisation of solar photovoltaic modules

by Inderscience Publishers  (Jul. 19, 2010)

This paper presents design, simulation and experimental set up for characterisation of PV cells/modules in the laboratory. A PC-based data acquisition system and associated interface circuit is developed, simulated and used for loading PV module in the laboratory to completely scan its I-V characteristics under varying environmental conditions of ...

Solar PV Testing

by Thermotron Industries  (Jul. 1, 2010)

Introduction The time is now for clean, renewable energy technologies. Favorable government tax credits, a decreased dependency upon oil, and the need to stimulate the economy are just three of the planets that have aligned, favoring the expansion of technologies that harness the sun’s energy. Manufacturers of Solar Photovoltaic (PV) modules ...

Solving solar-power issues

Certainly, no one would accept only having electricity during the day, and then only on clear days, if they have a choice. We need energy storage -- batteries. Unfortunately, batteries add a lot of cost and maintenance to the PV system. Currently, however, it's a necessity if you want to be completely independent. One way around the problem is to ...

A brighter future for solar in Texas

by Citizens League for Environmental Action Now (CLEAN)  (Jan. 1, 2007)

I'd put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don't have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that. - Thomas Edison, in conversation with Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone, 1931 According to the State Energy Conservation Office (SECO), Texas has the greatest solar energy potential of any state in the ...

Test Sites And Testing of 3-Sun Mirror Modules

by JX Crystals  (Aug. 28, 2014)

ABSTRACT The demand for solar photovoltaic cells and modules has far outstripped PV cell supply and module prices are rising. To solve this problem. JX Crystals is developing a 3-sun mirror module that uses 1/3 the cell area to triple module production at a lower cost. Our concentrator module design uses existing planar cells. We simply cut ...
