Concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) modules are a cost effective alternative flat-plate photovoltaic modules that concentrate the sun onto small, highly efficient solar cells.[1] This paper addresses the design, and characterization of CPV modules that use 39% efficient triple junction solar cells. The optical, electrical and thermal configuration of the module is investigated.
