Abstract

A model to evaluate the performance of high concentrator photovoltaics (HCPV) modules (that generates current-voltage curves) has been applied together with a Monte Carlo approach to obtain a distribution of modules with a given set of characteristics (e.g., receivers electrical properties and misalignments within elementary units in modules) related to a manufacturing scenario. In this paper, the performance of CPV systems (tracker and inverter) that contain the set of simulated modules is evaluated depending on different system characteristics: inverter configuration, sorting of modules and bending of the tracker frame. Thus, the study of the HCPV technology regarding its angular constrains is fully covered by analyzing all the possible elements affecting the generated electrical power.
