Controlled atmosphere pv concentrator

Objective

The purpose of this project is to develop a PV concentration system with an innovative line focus reflective concentration module concept. It consists on enclosing in a box the most sensible components of PV concentration modules (PV cells and reflectors), eliminating degradation problems related to this type of systems in reflectors and PV module encapsulating organic elements since they are not needed. The box has a low absorption glass window and contains a non-aggressive atmosphere for any of the internal parts. A passive heat sink element evacuates the remainder heat to the out side. Cost target of 3.0 euro/Wp will be reached for mass production of the whole system.
