PITTSBURGH, Jan. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- An inventor from Pittsburgh, Pa., has developed the THREE-DIMENSIONAL TOTAL INTERNAL REFLECTION SOLAR CELL, a new type of photovoltaic power generation system. There is a U.S. patent on this invention.
"I was reading an article in a magazine, which spawned my idea. My idea makes solar energy more competitive by using the optics of the solar panel housing to improve energy collection," said the inventor. The THREE-DIMENSIONAL TOTAL INTERNAL REFLECTION SOLAR CELL represents a new type of solar power system design. It is of a photovoltaic energy-generating system that uses a form of light concentration and redirection done through optics. It utilizes a low-profile housing with both highly reflective surfaces and optical interfaces. This system offers greater output than a traditional planar arrays. It offers superior cost-effectiveness by maximizing solar cell efficiency, while minimizing energy loss. This system is adaptable for use in a variety of applications, including utility, commercial, and homestead.
The original design was submitted to the Pittsburgh sales office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
