Abstract
In this paper, we propose a novel technique to design flat Fresnel lens to achieve big concentration ratio, high uniform irradiance distribution while keeping F-number small using both refraction and total internal reflection (TIR) phenomena. Also, this method can be used to design concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) system without secondary optics lens (SOE). In this technique, Fresnel lens is constructed by many prisms, which are built by ideal Cartesian oval. The design process of Fresnel lens was performed using Matlab program. Ray tracing technique has been used to optimize the structure of lens using LightToolsTM software. The simulation results have been shown that Fresnel lens has a good optical property such asconcentration ratio is 2500x, F-number =0.4, and high uniform irradiance distribution.
