Abstract
This paper describes the overall design and experimental results obtained with the PV-FIBRE concentrator system (CPV). This system uses a parabolic dish to collect and concentrate the sunlight which is further guided by a transparent rod and finally by individual short fibres. Eventually, the individual fibres are connected to single cells which are located indoors. Dual-junction III-V based solar cells with an efficiency of 30% and operating at 1000X are applied in the PV-FIBRE system. This new system approach allows a suitable optical and electrical interconnection in order to reduce the losses and the indoor operation of the cell receiver
