Solar collectors suffer from many types of loss. The collector is an energy system consisting of a concentrator, a receiver, some kind of support structure, and the means to connect it to a larger system such as a working fluid or an inverter in the cases of solar thermal energy conversion and grid-connected photovoltaic generation of electricity, respectively.
