Abstract:


Renewable energy sources are non pollutant electricity production systems. Solar power is one of the most known renewable sources. The important goal in using solar energy systems is to reduce the production cost in order to compete it with the other sources. This paper represents a study on solar power concentrators in their two conversion strategies: photovoltaic and thermal.
