The behaviour of a 20-cell InGaP/In0.01GaAs/Ge multi-junction concentrator system was simulated in 5-min intervals over an entire year with agreement within 2% between measured and modelled annual energy yields. Air mass, aerosol optical depth and precipitable water have been identified as the atmospheric parameters with the largest impact on system efficiency.
