This model is about Compound Parabolic Concentrator (CPC) with horizontal plate reciver.
User must use the solar radiation model in order to calculate the solar normal beam and
diffuse irradiance, W/m2. The model would calculate the following:
3-Actual recieved energy on the reciever plate.
User can select between 2D or 3D operation. Solar radiation models are included within this model. Bird, Iqbal, Hottle, Atwater & Ball models are ready for you.
**MatLab-SimuLink should be used to run the model.
