Abstract
Writing optimization code for commercially available ray-tracing software, we explore variations of concentrator geometry where sunlight is first incident onto a stationary primary mirror of circular cross section. The reflected light is incident onto a smaller, secondary moveable mirror which focuses the light onto a target. Simulations show concentrations on the order of 30 solar equivalents are possible.
