19 September 2011 Comparison of tracking and non-tracking holographic planar concentrator systems
Author Affiliations +
A comparison of static and single-axis tracking holographic planar concentrator systems is made. Tracking is used as a design parameter that can provide additional degrees of freedom in the spectrum and uniformity of the beam illuminating the photovoltaic cell surface. These parameters impact the energy yield of the system. An overview of these factors and an estimate of the cost differences for the two systems will be presented.
