Small-Scale Solar Cogeneration Systems

A. Ryyan and G. Bastian
Abstract—Solar cogeneration systems provide electrical energy as well as thermal energy. This combination is common in many large-scale solar power plants, but rare in small-scale domestic systems. We are introducing a combination of recent developments, which can overcome existing problems aiming at a medium temperature domestic system. Advanced non-imaging solar concentrators, thin-film thermoelectric modules and high temperature selective absorbers are promising techniques to achieve a non-tracking cogeneration system with reasonable cost and performance levels.

Index Terms—Cogeneration, solar, thermoelectrics.
