Abstract: front page image
(EN)A photovoltaic device includes a plurality of photovoltaic cells disposed in an array in which each cell is adjacent to another cell. Each of the cells includes first and second photovoltaic modules. The first photovoltaic module of each cell is configured to convert a first part of light energy incident thereon into electrical energy and to reflect to the second photovoltaic module of an adjacent cell at least some of a remaining portion of light energy incident thereon. The second photovoltaic module of each cell is configured to convert into electrical energy the remaining portion of the light energy received from the first photovoltaic module of an adjacent cell.
(FR)L’invention concerne un dispositif photovoltaïque comprenant une pluralité de cellules photovoltaïques disposées en réseau, chaque cellule étant adjacente à une autre cellule dans ce réseau. Chaque cellule comprend des premier et deuxième modules photovoltaïques. Le premier module photovoltaïque de chaque cellule est configuré pour convertir une premier partie d’énergie lumineuse incidente en énergie électrique et pour réfléchir sur le deuxième module photovoltaïque d’une cellule adjacente au moins une partie de l’énergie lumineuse incidente restante. Le deuxième module photovoltaïque de chaque cellule est configuré pour convertir en énergie électrique la partie restante de l’énergie lumineuse reçue du premier module photovoltaïque d’une cellule adjacente.
