Abstract: Research project for the optimization and the dissemination of a system for the production of electric energy using ad high-concentration photovoltaic modules.
The CESARE system consists in a concentrating photovoltaic plant (CPV system), whose principal elements are linear parabolic concentrators and linear arrays of PV cells.
The project foresees the development of a combined system for the production of electric energy,heat and hydrogen. The concentration optics is a linearcollector with parabolic profile, which is coupled to a row of solar cells.
