A theoretical study of a new approach for a solar simulator design capable of testing solar
collectors is described. The technique involved in this design requires that the source have
rotational symmetry and employs a 2-D approach in the calculation of the irradiance in the image
plane. Reflecting surfaces to be used with two different types of light source are computed to
illustrate practical applications of this method.
