A solar-electric system is proposed and discussed. This system uses concentrated mirrors focusing on a thermophotovoltaic (TPV) converter. Within the TPV converter the concentrated sunlight heats a refractory radiator. A silicon photovoltaic cell faces the radiator, receives incandescent radiation from it, and converts this radiation into electricity.
