CPV System with Static Linear Fresnel Lenses in a Greenhouse

Samenvatting

A new CPV system with a static linear Fresnel lens, silicon PV module suitable for concentrated radiation and an innovative tracking system is integrated in a greenhouse covering. The basic idea of this horticultural application is to develop a greenhouse for pot plants (typical shadow plants) which don’t like high direct radiation. Removing all direct radiation will block up to 77% of the solar energy, which will reduce the necessary cooling capacity. The solar energy focused on the Thermal Photovoltaic (PV∕T) module generates electric and thermal energy. The PV∕T module is tracked in the focal line and requires cooling due to the high heat load of the concentrated radiation (concentration factor of 50 times). All parts are integrated in a greenhouse with a size of about 36 m2. The electrical and thermal yield is determined for Dutch climate circumstances. Some measurements were performed with a PMMA linear Fresnel lens between double glass. Further improvement of the performance of the CPV‐system is possible by using a PDMS lens directly laminated on glass and using AR‐coated glass. This lens is developed with ZEMAX and the results of the Ray‐tracing simulations are presented with the lens structure oriented in an upwards and downwards position. The best performance of the static linear Fresnel lens is achieved with upwards orientation of the lens structures. In practice this is only possible with the Fresnel lens placed between a double glass structure, which will keep the lens clean and free of water.
