A special modeling method using Simulink has been developed to analyze the electrical performance of dense-array concentrator photovoltaic (CPV) system. To optimize the performance of CPV system, we have adopted computational modeling method to design the best configuration of dense-array layout specially tailored for flux distribution profile of solar concentrator. It is an expeditious, efficient and cost effective approach to optimize any dense-array configuration for any solar concentrator. A prototype of non-imaging planar concentrator (NIPC) was chosen in this study for verifying the effectiveness of this method. Mismatch effects in dense array solar cells caused by non-uniform irradiance as well as sun-tracking error normally happens at the peripheral of the array. It is a crucial drawback that affects the electrical performance of CPV systems because maximum output power of the array is considerably reduced when a current–voltage (I–V) curve has many mismatch steps and thus leads to lower fill factor (FF) and conversion efficiency. The modeling method is validated by assembling, installing and field testing on an optimized configuration of solar cells with the NIPC prototype to achieve a conversion efficiency of 34.18%. The measured results are in close agreement with simulated results with a less than 3% deviation in maximum output power.
