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.
