CPV-CAD Concentrating PhotoVoltaic - Computer Aided Design

Software for Concentrating Photovoltaic (CPV) and Hybrid Photovoltaic&Thermal (PV&T) Systems Cost Optimization and Automated Design

CPV-CAD allows to:

- Optimize the structure and design the PV system, having the minimal price for the given value of output electric power
- Realize the economic analysis
- Get the working drawing of cost optimized PV system.

By CPV-CAD following types of mirror reflecting linear focus concentrating Photovoltaic (CPV) systems can be designed:



Parabolic trough Fresnel reflecting 

 Parabolic trough composed

by flat mirrors


The CPV systems can be both stand-alone or grid connected.

The CPV-CAD is for Engineers, Researchers and Education.
