Abstract:

The results are presented of Phase I of a program to study and evaluate the use of concentration with photovoltaic power generators. The program is divided into 3 parts 1 Preliminary investigation of all factors relating to the use of concentration with photovoltaic power generators 2 Technical analysis of photovoltaic power generators in the power range from 500 to 1500 watts and 3 Design, fabrication, and test of a 50-watt scale model of the 1500 watt power system. It was concluded from the work conducted to date that the use of concentration with photovoltaic power systems has important advantages at the present time and will become even more useful in the near future as better solar cell filters and fabrication techniques are developed.
