6 Performance of the Amonix High Concentration Photovoltaic System at the NV Energy Clark Station
Download citation file:
This paper is a summary of the long term performance of three high concentration photovoltaic systems since their installation in March of 2006. The performance of the systems was determined based upon a weather station located on site which has sensors that measure direct normal radiation, global horizontal radiation, ambient temperature, humidity, wind speed, and wind direction. The paper also includes challenges that were encountered during the operation of the systems and solutions to those challenges.
