Abstract

A Monte Carlo method has been developed to simulate the performance of luminescent solar collectors (LSC) consisting of a PMMA plate with an attached film (or multiple-film stack) of dye-activated PMMA. Rhodamine 6G and Fluorol 555 have been considered as dopant dyes. Direct and diffuse solar spectra have been simulated in order to compare extreme insolation conditions. Efficiency factors have been determined as a function of the main geometrical and optical parameters of the LSC.
