Self-Tracking Optofluidic Solar Concentrators

Abstract: 

Our group at the University of North Texas is developing a high-efficiency self-tracking solar concentrator using a novel optofluidic system based on electrowetting. This invention reduces capital costs for concentrating photovoltaics (CPV) and increases operational efficiency by eliminating the power consumption of mechanical tracking. Most importantly, the elimination of bulky tracking hardware and quiet operation will allow extensive residential deployment of concentrated solar power. In comparison with traditional silicon-based PV solar cells, the electrowetting-based self-tracking technology will generate ~70% higher green energy with a 50% cost reduction. The success of this program has huge market impacts and will enable a paradigm shift in the role of concentrating photovoltaics in the U.S. energy market. Besides, we will also introduce electrowetting-controlled digital heat transfer for electronic chip cooling.
