The paper presents a new technique for optimizing the solar irradiation utilization on a PV module. The technique somehow works partly on the principle of the concentrated solar power (CSP) tower. The design of the solar concentrator pillar was described to solve the challenges of solar shading and solar irradiation variability in coastal tropical region. Using meteorological dataset, a theoretical simulation that involves the optimization of the processes using Bessel, Legendre, Chebyshev and Lucas polynomial functions was adequately described. The analysis of the energy expected via the magnitude of solar irradiation was calculated. A maximum energy yield of 120kWhr can be obtained via theoretical analysis. The data is presented for further optimization processes.
