The relevant variables for the use of CPV systems are determined through experimentation considering the implementation of Fresnel lenses as light concentrators. This allows generating a structured design guide composed of different methods of measurement, selection and development. The methodical process is based on a perspective of functional modules considering needs, technical aspects and particular usage conditions of each design and it would provide appropriate guidelines in each circumstance.
