Original Abstract

Photovoltaic concentrators are systems which use lenses or mirrors to concentrate sunlight on the photovoltaic cell. The reason for their use is to reduce the size of the cell in order to achieve the desired performance. It is also possible to use more powerful photovoltaic cells, which would have been without using a concentrator too expensive in relation to the generating output. Concentration of solar radiation also causes disadvantages associated with greater warming. Light radiation is converted into electrical energy only partially, the remaining greater part is converted into thermal energy. Provided that the heat with additional cooling components is removed, it can occur in systems with high concentration the total destruction.
