Solar planar concentrator

“SolVar Systems” has developed completely new, low cost, high efficient planar concentrator of solar rays. Concentrator has several advantages in comparison with existing parabolic through or Fresnel lens type concentrators. The proposed concentrator has the simple planar panel structure and it does not require a significant focal distance. The solar rays are incident to the flat surface and concentrated on to the one edge of panel, where the receivers are placed. The other advantages are simplified sun tracking, less wind loading and small maintenance costs. The concentrator effectively can be used for concentration of solar rays and transformation of solar energy into electric or thermal energies.


The proposed innovation is a cardinally new approach in solar technologies. The application of proposed technology will allow effectively use the solar energy and make the solar energy cheaper in comparison with traditional energy sources.
