Solar Reector Design

Bandeira, A. and Bell, C.G. and Charpin, J.P.F. and Gaburro, R. and Soussi, S. and Wilson, R.E. (2009) Solar Reector Design. [Study Group Report]



The design of solar panels is investigated. Different aspects of this problem are presented. A formula averaging the solar energy received on a given location is derived rst. The energy received by the collecting solar panel is then calculated using a specially designed algorithm. The geometry of the device collecting the energy may then be optimised using different algorithms. The results show that for a given depth, devices of smaller width are more energy efficient than those of wider dimensions. This leads to a more economically efficient design.
