About this book

The aim of this book is to provide a comprehensive overview of the fundamentals and engineering of high concentrator photovoltaic (HCPV) technology and to elucidate how this complex and emerging technology is applied in power plants. It is the first of its kind to focus exclusively on HCPV technology and offers a valuable reference volume to readers. This book is the result of an international collaboration among experts and each chapter is written by a specialist in the field.

The conversion of solar energy to electricity plays an important role in power generation and HCPV is signalled by many researchers and professionals as one of the most promising sources of solar power. Therefore this book provides an important resource for companies, research institutes and universities to assist with the understanding of fundamentals, different applications and potential of such technology.

About the authors

Dr Pedro Pérez-Higueras is professor at the University of Jaen (Spain) and he researches since more than 20 years in the field of photovoltaic energy. In the last seven years, he has worked in High Concentrator Photovoltaics Technology and his research interest covers the developing, characterization and modelling of concentrator photovoltaic devices and optimal design of power plants. He has collaborated in more than 30 R&D projects with different companies and institutions and he has published more than 100 papers in the most prestigious peer-review journals and congresses related to solar energy.

Dr. Eduardo F. Fernández has worked more than 10 years in the field of solar energy and Concentrator Photovoltaics. During this time he has been involved in research projects in prestigious research institutes, universities and private companies. His research interest covers the developing, characterization and modelling of concentrator photovoltaic devices and systems. He has been granted a project funded by the Spanish/Galician government and European Union for developing high concentrator photovoltaic modules based on new concepts and configurations between the optical elements and high efficiency solar cells. Recently, he has received the Juan de la Cierva fellowship, the most prestigious grant for young researchers of the Spanish government. He has published numerous papers in the most prestigious peer-review journals and congresses related to high concentrato

r photovoltaic technology.
