Abstract

Solar power generation is the most promising technology to transfer energy consumption reliance from fossil fuel to renewable sources. Concentrated solar power generation is a method to concentrate the sunlight from a bigger area to a smaller area. The collected sunlight is converted more efficiently through two types of technologies: concentrated solar photovoltaic’s (CSPV) and concentrated solar thermal power (CSTP) generation. In this research work, these two technologies would be evaluated in terms of system construction, performance characteristics, design considerations, cost benefit analysis and their field experience. The two concentrated solar power generation systems would be implemented with similar solar concentrators and solar tracking systems but with different energy collecting and conversion components: the CSPV system will use high efficiency multi-junction solar cell modules, while the CSTP system will use a boiler -turbine-generator setup. The performances would be calibrated via the experiments and evaluation analysis.
