Domínguez and P. García-Linares 1 Introduction Motivated by the interest of the satellite industry and a growing number of companies working on terrestrial concentrator systems, the progress on multijunction solar cells (MJSC) has been accelerated from the beginning of the century. The increasing record efficiencies achieved boost the interest of their use as a source of electricity in terrestrial photovoltaic (PV) plants.

Figure 12 shows an example of the simulated annual power density of an MJ solar cell with an SOG Fresnel lens as a primary optic in Granada, southern Spain. The external quantum efficiency of the cell and transmittance of the Fresnel lens used are plotted in Fig. 9. 5 %. To quantify the effect of cell temperature, the times series of air temperature is estimated from the maximum, minimum, and average values obtained from the NASA atmospheric database for an entire year [85–87]. The cell temperature was calculated using Eq.
