Features and Benefits
LT Solar CPV technology combines GaAS multi-junction solar cells into a high concentration flat fresnel lens design. At over 1000 suns, the module achieves greater than 27% conversion efficiency, establishing a new IEC benchmark for CPV systems.
Enabled by advanced triple junction cells self-manufactured
Less than half the degradation in power output due to temperature of silicon panels
Employs refractive, non-imaging optical lens and multilevel concentrator parts which avoids chromatic aberration
Reliable & Robust Design
Proven materials, partially tempered front glass and a sturdy anodized frame allowed module to operate reliably in multi-array mounting configurations.
Enclosed modular assembly –no exposed cables and circuits avoids fire hazards.
No moving parts inside –avoids mechanical failure and keeps Transportation Security.
Glass-based concentrator immune to UV degradation.
More power per module means fewer modules per installment.
LT Solar’s CPV systems are designed to be used in conjunction with LT Solar’s high precision dual axis trackers in order to optimize system performance.
The module incorporates 12 individual modular receivers and achieves an acceptance angle of ±0.86 degree which is the widest among CPV design, owering tracker and balance of systems costs. Reliability is achieved with fully-enclosed design.In this concentrator design pattern,incident solar radiation is concentrated using three optical element. Primary and secondary glassesare arranged in a frame structure that directs sunlight to the cell via a tertiary, non-imaging optical glass.
This design offersa wide insolation acceptance angle(±0.86°)and this concentrating profile improving power, efficiency and cost.
