TEST AND DEMONSTRATION OF CONCENTRATING PHOTOVOLTAIC GENERATORS OF THE SOPHOCLES TYPE UNDER MEDITERRANEAN CLIMATIC CONDITIONS
The SOPHOCLE program (solar Photovoltaic with limited Concentration of Energy) has for its purpose the development and the experimentation of a family of photovoltaic generators using concentration of Solar rays (C=45). These generators make use of an altazimuth mounting with two axis tracking. The conception of the system is modular Silicon Solar Cells and Concentrating Fresnel lenses integrated six by six in passively cooled modules. After an international program on tests of reliability with low power SOPHOCLE systems, the L.A.S.A. has undertaken an experiment on 500 W-p - generator provided with a DC motor pump in parallel with a similar experience at the University of Athens. The aim of this experience, supported by EEC, is on the one hand to analyse the individual behaviour of the modules, concerning watertightness, insulation and disparity of electric characteristics, and on the other hand to evaluate the energy production line generator - converter - motor pump.
