The future of energy generation is well in tune with the critical needs of the global economy, leading to more green innovations and emissions-abatement technologies. Introducing concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) is one of the most promising technologies owing to its high photo-conversion efficiency (PCE). While most researchers use silicon and cadmium telluride for CPV, we investigate the potential in nascent technologies, such as perovskite solar cell (PSC). This work constitutes a preliminary investigation into a ‘large-area’ PSC module under a Fresnel lens (FL) with a ‘refractive optical concentrator-silicon-on-glass’ base to minimise the PV performance and scalability trade-off concerning the PSCs. The FL-PSC system measured the solar current-voltage characteristics in variable lens-to-cell distances and illuminations. A systematic study of the PSC module temperature was monitored using the COMSOL transient heat transfer mechanism. The FL-based technique for ‘large-area’ PSC architecture is an unfolded technology that further facilitates the potential for commercialisation.
