Solar Concentrator’s Effect on Solar Panel Efficiency

  • Manoj Kumar Panjwani Department of Energy Systems Engineering, Sukkur IBA University Pakistan


Given the current energy emergencies, the existing emphasis is increasing on the renewables as researchers predict near the end to fossils. In the light of the current renewable energy resources, the solar energy is seen to be one of the most reliable ones for the third world countries. Moreover, the efficiency of current commercial photovoltaics hardly touches 30 %. This paper studies the mechanism of empowering solar concentrators to collect higher solar irradiation to concentrate on the solar panel and study the variations in the amount of power received and the temperature constraints. The study utilises the use of solar concentrators in regions under and over the mentioned standard temperature ranges by the manufacturer on the specification sheet, and thoroughly studies the variations observed in output parameters.
