Abstract/Summary:


This paper examines the long term reliability of Soitec’s CPV technology by analyzing a total of 68 months of AC energy and Direct-Normal Irradiance data acquired at Puertollano, Spain. The reliability of the module performance is quantified using the AC Performance Ratio. The results are verified by repetitive indoor measurements of seven modules of this plant in intervals of one to one-and-a-half years since their installation in 2009.
