Original Abstract

Photovoltaic cells are using for conversion energy from renewable energy source (sun) to electrical energy. Concentrators systems of photovoltaic cells use mirrors or lens for concentrating the sun's rays and its subsequent routing onto solar cell. Thereby higher efficiency is achieving (approximately 10% higher). But temperature has an increased impact on the position of the operating point. Electrical properties of the cell changes at high temperatures. The terminal voltage decreases due to this change, thus causing a decrease in the load output.
