An approach using micro lens arrays to confine the cone angle of light source in a solar simulator has been proposed to verify the Fresnel lens in a high concentration photovoltaic (HCPV) system. Compared with other three prior arts by the computer simulation, the proposed method had the characteristics of the better approximation to the direct normal insolation and the low cost. Also, to ensure the erection of the evaluation system, the tolerance of lens alignment has been analyzed. The results showed that to maintain at least the 50% of the maximum luminous flux incident on the solar cell, the transverse and longitudinal tolerances of ±1.4 mm and ±4 mm, respectively, were required.
