Abstract
The SunCycle CPV system [1] uses two rotating optical stages in order to avoid the need of external sun-tracking while producing a geometrical concentration ratio of 870X. In the European FP7 project CPV4ALL dedicated to demonstrate commercially this system, CEA has developed a complete ray-tracing modeling and has carried out module indoor measurements. The system optical performance was simulated through a spring equinox in Marseille (France). The angular transmission is estimated and evaluated at 0.9°. Furthermore, angular tolerance to chassis misalignments and mirror and prism rotation angles are investigated. The Peak to Average Ratio of the irradiance map of the top and middle sub-cells is estimated for the photogenerated current, which is a value acceptable for such CPV system.
