Abstract

The GaInP/GaAs concentrator device has been adapted for and tested in a prototype 'real-world' concentrator power system. The device achieved an on sun efficiency of 27% ± 1% in the range of approximately 80-400 suns with device operating temperatures of 32°C to 50°C. We discuss ways of further improving this performance for future devices.
