dc.description.abstractAs most of PV systems, CPV systems are also affected by mismatching losses, particularly due to misalignment of optics and receivers. As a result, module level power electronics can help to increase their energy yield by making every CPV module deliver it maximum power at the output. Among the different alternatives, solutions based on DC power optimizers exhibit higher conversion efficiencies and lower costs than microinverters. However, while microinverters ensure optimal operation independently from the operating conditions, system design with DC power optimizers must be carefully examined to avoid potential underperformance. This paper describes not only the customized design and validation of a high-efficiency and economical DC power optimizer for HCPV systems, but also a comprehensive analysis of the whole system design to optimize its production under expected working conditions.en
