A page of my website

is concerned with a suggestion about a possible process of orientation of
the solar cells, able to improve their efficiency.
At the present time, this page is written in frensh. Is there some interest
to translate this page in english?

Merci bien.

Does it have to do with using the suns heat?
Does it go beyond the standard... "Point them at the sun"?

of course

we try to avoid to "point exactly at the sun", with a small loss of
efficiency, but a much more simple system of positioning of the solar cell.

Sure, but it would be nice to include diffuse rays as well.

The captation of diffuse rays is slightly dependent of the orientation of
the solar cell. Its contribution has to be added. But the content of my web
page is concerned with fine wheather.
