Abstract:

A summary is given of the anticipated performance of solar power systems over the next decade. This summary is based upon the analytical and empirical relationships describing component performance. Weight, cost, and reliability estimates are presented for photovoltaic power systems, and weight estimates are given for solar-thermal systems. Thermal converters include thermoelectric discs, thermionic emitters, turbo-generators, and the Stirling engine. Author
