Analytical Description of a Luminescent Solar Concentrator Device

Published on 2019-08-13T15:08:16Z (GMT) by
An analytical solution for the optical efficiency of a luminescent solar concentrator is presented. Due to a large number of input parameters and their complex effect on the device efficiency numerical simulations have been previously used for this purpose. The formulas, provided here, derived using a probabilistic approach, significantly reduce the complexity of the problem. The equations were validated by simulations and the obtained explicit expressions provide a clear common ground for the theoretical description of such devices. Implementation by a computer algebra program yields instant results for any set of input parameters. It allows a higher level of analysis, where an inverse task of finding parameters for a given efficiency can be readily solved.
