Abstract

The potential of a fibre luminescent solar concentrator has been explored by means of both analytical and ray-tracing techniques. For practical fibres concentration is predicted to be linear with fibre length. The collection efficiency under diffuse and direct irradiance in London has been analysed showing that, even under clear sky conditions, in winter the diffuse contribution equals the direct.
