Characteristics of Solar Concentrators as Applied to Space Power Systems 640481

An analysis is presented of current solar concentrator types when integrated into complete space power systems with various electrical conversion methods. Concentrator designs such as inflatable-rigidized, petal, one-piece, and Fresnel are treated in the paper and their size, weight, and packaging characteristics, when combined with dynamic and static conversion schemes, are illustrated. Information presented in the paper provides insight into the selection of concentrator designs for space power applications.
