Design and Characterization of Refractive Secondary Optical Elements for a Point-focus Fresnel Lens-based High CPV System

Download PDF

Point-focus Fresnel lens-based High Concentrator Photovoltaic (HCPV) systems are usually equipped with refractive secondary optical elements (SOE) in order to improve their performance. Two basic SOE designs are optically modeled and simulated in this work: Domed-Kaleidoscope (D-K) with breaking-symmetry top and SILO (SIngle-Lens-Optical element).
