A new method of design of optical systems are presented in this paper. This method is a generalization of one recently developed at Instituto de Energia Solar (I.E.S.) of Univ. Polit. de Madrid. The method referenced has been used on the design of non-imaging concentrators for finite and infinite source. Outstanding results at the 3D performance have been achieved. The method now presented has also been used in the concentrators design, getting the same results as former's. The aim of this method is the design of two surfaces optically active (lens, two mirror or lens-mirror combination) to transform one incoherent radiation of light arriving at the system's aperture into a different radiation at the system's outlet. A computer program has been built for the method application, and some examples have been included.
