Two new publications from University of Lleida

The University of Lleida published the paper “Assessement of the impact of non-uniform illumination and temperature profiles on a dense array CPV receiver performance” at the Solar Energy Journal. You can find the paper at the following link:   https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0038092X18306649

Also, they participate at the 14th International Conference on Concentrator Photovoltaic Systems (CPV14) with the presentation “Dense array CPV receivers: Impact of the cooling device on the Net PV output for different illumination profiles”.

*With the aim of demonstrating the usefulness of the STREAMS cooling solution in other fields than Microelectronics, and as exposed in the Grant Agreement, STREAMS team assessed the impact in Dense Array Concentrating PhotoVoltaics (CPV) receivers.
