Abstract: The temperature dependences of the electrical characteristics of InGaP/InGaAs/Ge triple-junction solar cells under concentration were evaluated. For these solar cells, conversion efficiency (η) decreased with increasing temperature, and increased with increasing concentration ratio owing to an increase in open-circuit voltage. The decrease in ηwith increasing temperature decreases with increasing concentration ratio. Moreover, the annual output of a concentrator system with a high-efficiency triple-junction cell is estimated utilizing the experimental solar cell’s characteristics obtained in this study and field-test meteorological data collected for one year at the Nara Institute of Science and Technology, and compared with that of a nonconcentration flat-plate system.
