Abstract

A 4-parameter formula is proposed for describing the hourly AC performance of a grid-connected, passively-cooled CPV system. The formula is validated against data from a pair of Soitec systems in the northern and southern hemispheres and found to be accurate to at least ± 10% at all times of the year.
