|An improved solar photovoltaic module|
A solar photovoltaic module comprising a heat dissipator body comprising a plurality of troughs across it, the opposite sidewalls of each of the troughs comprising light concentrators comprising light reflectors located inclined to the surface of the heat dissipater body at an angle of 15 to 30º, each of the troughs comprising a plurality of photovoltaic cells sandwiched between a bottom protective layer and a top protective layer, an electric insulator layer fixed to the bottom protective layer and a transparent cover fixed to the top protective layer.
Advantages: It is compact.
