Title (EN) SOLAR ENERGY SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEME A ENERGIE SOLAIRE
Abstract:
(EN) A system for extracting energy from the sun"s rays including a bank of solar energy cells (326) which generate an electrical current or other forms of useful energy when exposed to the rays of the sun. A heat exchange manifold system (324 and 350) transmits heat away from the cells (326). The cells (326) are shaped so as to cause a trapping effect of radiation incident thereon. The converting unit is preferably equipped with light gathering and focusing means (340 and 341) thereby providing a coherent optical output.
(FR) Systeme pour extraire de l"energie des rayons solaires comprenant un groupe de cellules d"energie solaire (326) qui produisent une energie utile sous forme d, un courant electrique ou sous d"autres formes. Un systeme collecteur d"echange de chaleur (324 et 350) enleve de la chaleur des cellules (326) pour la transmettre. Les cellules (326) se conforment de facon telle qu"elles exercent sur les rayons incidents un effet de piege. L"unite de conversion possede, de preference, des moyens collecteurs et de focalisation de la lumiere (340 et 341), produisant ainsi une emission optique coherente.
