Title (EN) IMPROVED PHOTO-VOLTAIC DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF PHOTO-VOLTAÏQUE AMÉLIORÉ
Abstract:
(EN) A photo-voltaic cell for converting concentrated light into electricity, and a method of manufacturing thereof. The photo-voltaic cell comprising: an inactive substrate; and at least one epitaxial layer deposited on the substrate. The photo-voltaic cell comprising one or more metallic contact layers for enabling electrical contact to the cell. The photo-voltaic cell can further comprise gridlines having a relatively high thickness to width aspect ratio. The photo-voltaic cell can be applied to a photovoltaic module. The module can further comprise a light guiding prism and/or adaptive optics and/or a Fresnel lens element. A photovoltaic system can include one or more cell modules, and one or more cell interconnection modules for monitoring the performance of the cell modules.
(FR) L'invention porte sur une cellule photovoltaïque convertissant de la lumière concentrée en électricité, et sur son procédé de fabrication. Ladite cellule comporte: un substrat inactif; au moins une couche épitaxiale déposée sur le substrat; une ou plusieurs couches métalliques en contact électrique avec la cellule; et des lignes de grille relativement plus hautes que larges. De telles cellules peuvent s'appliquer à un module photovoltaïque pouvant lui-même comporter un prisme guide de lumière et/ou une optique d'adaptation et/ou une lentille de Fresnel. L'invention porte également sur un système photovoltaïque pouvant comprendre un ou plusieurs modules de cellules et sur un ou plusieurs modules d'interconnexion de cellules contrôlant les performances des modules de cellules.
