Abstract

In a recently-published series of papers we studied the general problem of matching large PV systems of various kinds to the electricity grid. In those studies CPV systems were simulated via an artificial ansatz in which they were treated as 2-axis flat-panel PV systems whose light sensitivity is only to the direct normal component (DNI) of solar irradiancc. The present study replaces this ansatz with an experimentally validated model of a real CPV system. We compare a genuine 2-axis high-concentration CPV system with a static flat-panel PV system from the standpoint of matching both system types to the Israeli electricity grid.
