Pandya, R., H. Raja, D. Enriquez-Torres, M.I. Serey-Roman, Y. Hassebo, and M. Marciniak, 2018: Mathematical simulation of efficiency of various shapes of solar panels for NASA geostationary satellites. In Physics, Simulation, and Photonic Engineering of Photovoltaic Devices VII, SPIE OPTO, 27 January - 1 February 2018, San Fancisco, California, Proc. SPIE, vol. 10527, p. 105270N, doi:10.1117/12.2290991.

The purpose of this research is to analyze mathematically cylindrical shapes of flexible solar panels and compare their efficiency to the flat panels. The efficiency is defined to be the flux density, which is the ratio of the mathematical flux and the surface area. In addition we describe the trajectory of the Sun at specific locations: the North Pole, The Equator and a geostationary satellite above the Equator. The calculations were performed with software: Maple, Mathematica, and MATLAB.
