Abstract

Thermal characterization of Concentrating Photovoltaics (CPV) modules and Arrays is needed to determine their performance and modelling of energy forecast. Module-ambient thermal resistance is easily obtained from its definition but the cell-module thermal resistant needs to be estimated from indirect procedures, two of them are presented in this paper. In addition, an equivalent parameter is defined, the Concentrator Nominal Operating Module/Cell Temperature (CNOMT/CNOCT), the temperature at Concentrator Standard Operating Conditions (CSOC). Definitions and expression to relate (CNOMT/CNOCT) to thermal resistances are presented, plus several examples of estimations from real operating arrays.
