    The efficiency and thermal loss tests performed on the Scientific Atlanta Faceted Fixed Mirror Solar Concentrator are summarized. COMPARISON OF SOLAR CONCENTRATORS ARI RABL Solar Energy Group, Argonne National Laboratory, Argonne, IL , U.S.A. (Received 23 April in revised form 10 December ) Abstract--Even though most variations of solar concentrators have been studied or .

    The U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Scientific and Technical Information Solar collector field subsystem program on the fixed mirror solar concentrator. Final report, Ma .   Flat mirrors used for our solar concentrators are less expensive than concave mirrors used for other types of parabolic dish concentrators. The principal idea of the parabolic surface adjustment is to use the parabolic gauge that has a special shaft to install it in the central tube of the concentrator : Tetyana Baydyk, Ernst Kussul, Donald C. Wunsch.

    This concentrating solar power system uses mirrors to focus highly concentrated sunlight onto a receiver that converts the sun’s heat into energy. Receiver and generator Concentrator Individual dish/engine systems currently can generate about 25 kW of electricity. Fig. 2 A dish system. (iii) use of NREL’s SAM software to analyze overall performance. Keywords – solar energy; solar concentrator 1 Introduction The Promise of Soalr Energy Solar energy is emerging as one of the most promising sustainable energy sources. A solar energy plant takes solar energy and converts it to useful energy and/or products.

Get this from a library. Performance testing of the scientific Atlanta faceted fixed mirror solar concentrator. [Vernon E Dudley; Robert M Workhoven; United States. Department of Energy.; Sandia Laboratories.; Sandia Laboratories.

Experimental Systems Operations Division ; EG & G, Inc. Energy Measurements Group.]. The model simulated concentrated efficiency was calculated from to 90°.

Since the fixed mirror concentrator designed for the experiment was symmetrical about its center line, the theoretical concentrated efficiency for solar angles between and 90° were simply mirror images of those between and 90°.Cited by: 7.

Department of Energy.; Sandia Laboratories.; Sandia Laboratories. Solar Total Energy Test Facility Division ; Edgerton, Germeshausen & Grier.]. The fixed mirror solar concentrator (FMSC) is a mobile focus concentrator whose design emerged in the s in an effort to reduce electricity production costs in solar thermal power plants.

This geometry has not yet been analyzed with 3D ray-tracing by:   The fixed mirror solar concentrator (FMSC) possesses a geometry that can produce thermal energy in medium temperature range. Due to its static reflector, the FMSC has several advantages when compared to other designs, such as being one Cited by: This paper describes the design, development and optical testing of fixed mirror solar concentrators with cylindrical mirror slats, composed of thin, cold-rolled steel tapes with aluminised acrylic solar reflecting films pasted to them and stretched across widely spaced structural supports under Cited by: 2.

Fixed mirror solar concentrator. The line target moves in a circular arc. I rediscovered this while reading about Compound Parabolic secondary concentrators. Unfortunately, I could not read any of the appropriate papers, only abstracts, even though I have access to university data bases.

Guess I'll have to hunt down the paper copies. A new concept for a fixed-mirror solar concentrator is described. The fixed, stepped surface of the proposed cylindrical mirror is designed to produce a sharply focused line image regardless of the incident sun direction.

This is in contrast with the severe off-axis aberration (hence, poor concentration factor) of a parabolic mirror for all sun Cited by: 7. Performance comparison of mirror reflected solar panel with tracking and cooling Abstract: Dwindling nature of fossil fuels led many countries to search for new and alternative sources of energy.

Solar energy is a clean, eco-friendly and abundantly available energy source. Concentrating solar collectors use shaped mirrors or lens to provide higher temperatures that flat plate collectors. Heliostats are tracking mirrors that reflect solar energy onto a fixed target.

This page "concentrates" on providing links, information and plans for Build It Yourself concentrating collectors. First surface mirrors are an extremely efficient way of concentrating solar energy, much more efficient for their size than a fresnel lens.

This type of mirror is also essential for optical. The accomplishments of a program of continued development of a solar heat supply system employing a faceted fixed mirror concentrator (FFMC) are summarized.

This concentrator has provided heated air at several hundred degrees Celcius with efficiency exceeding conventional collectors. Stanford Libraries' official online search tool for books, media, journals, databases, government documents and more.

The Fixed Mirror Solar Concentrator (FMSC) is a solar concentrator with static reflector and moving receiver whose design emerged in the seventies as an effort to reduce electricity production costs in solar thermal power plants. Solar concentrators based on this geometry were constructed in the seventies and eighties.

A review of these prototypes is presented, highlighting the lack in Cited by: 8. The 9M Solar Concentrator (Solar Dish) blends rugged design with art and functionality.

Meticulous attention to detail starts from the mechanical design stage. Stress point simulation is performed on all major components to ensure maximum strength and durability. The solar concentrator has been tested for 6 years in harsh winter climates to desert conditions to ensure performance, reliability.

Solar concentrator is a device that allows the collection of sunlight from a large area and focusing it on a smaller receiver or exit. A conceptual representation of a solar concentrator used in harnessing the power from the sun to generate electricity is shown in Figure Size: KB.

Fixed mirror solar concentrator (FMSC) j. Linear Fresnel reflector k. Central heliostat tower receiver and Review on solar thermal power concentrators Volume 1 Issue 3 - Saleh et al.,11 evaluated the optical performance of a static 3-D elliptical hyperboloid concentrator (EHC) by using.

It will also analyse on some of the existing solar concentrators used in the solar technology for the past four decades. The design and performance of each concentrator will be explained and compared. The use of solar energy requires optimizing each part of a photovoltaic system: collection optics, the photovoltaic array, switches, controllers, current inverters, storage devices and tracking mechanics.

A vast amount of research is currently focused on perfecting each of these areas. Several types of solar concentrator technology are transitioning from the R&D stage to commercial deployment.

This is a solar concentrator made out of a DirectTV satellite dish with aluminum foil glued to it. The LNB is also covered with aluminum foil to protect it.

A leaf is held in front of the focal. The first mirror (collector) reflects the incoming rays of sunlight to a focal point in the second (concentrator) mirror, which is smaller. The concentrator then directs the sun rays into the middle of the reflector mirror where the solar cell is located.Optical Design and Characterization of Solar Concentrators for Photovoltaics 4 ruption of the translational symmetry when the microstructured reflec-tors were introduced.

It was concluded that structured reflectors are used at their largest benefit if they .PARABOLIC SOLAR CONCENTRATOR. ABOUT SOLARTRON Solartron Energy Systems Inc.
