Abstract
In this work the concept of integrating tracking in concentrating photovoltaics is briefly summarized and possible fields of application are classified. A previously proposed system setup relies on the use of two rotational symmetric laterally moving plano-convex lenses to achieve 500× concentration over an angular range of ±24?. However, the circular lens apertures are less suitable for application in lens array structures. A new design algorithm based on the Simultaneous Multiple Surface algorithm in three dimensions (SMS3D) demonstrates the ability to address this problem. Performance simulations show that the resulting non-rotational symmetric design outperforms its conventional rotational symmetric counterpart.
