Prepared under Subcontract No. AXL Subcontract Report NREL/SR The performance of a South African parabolic trough solar collector (PTSC) module has been characterised using the ASHRAE stan-dard. The collector is designed for component test-ing and development in a solar ener gy research pro-gramme. Low-temperature testing was performed at Mangosuthu Technikon’s STARlab facility using.

    concentrating collector’s specifically solar Parabolic Trough Collector (PTC) which has proven as the best solar energy tracking device. The present study embraces two effects on the collector, one is optimization of receiver tube and the other is the change of heat transfer fluid in receiver tube such as. In this study, the parabolic trough collector's (PTC) performance is analyzed. In order to achieve this goal, the adopted procedure comprises two main steps. In the first step, the concentrated solar heat flux densities in the solar concentrator focal zone are calculated by soltrace software. In the second step, computational fluid dynamics.

The testing is summarized which was performed on the Hexcel Parabolic Trough Solar Collector at the Solar Total Energy Test Facility. Test objectives are defined, test procedures are described, and results and conclusions are by: 1.

The performance of a South African parabolic trough solar collector (PTSC) module has been characterised using the ASHRAE standard.

The collector is designed for component testing. The solar cooker uses parabolic trough collector of aperture area 2m2. The energy obtained from the present parabolic trough solar collector.

The paper presents the technical data on the line-focusing collectors with single-axis tracking and the experimental tests to demonstrate the effects of collector spacing and orientation on annual energy output. Solar energy must be capable of supplying energy to the industrial process market which will require temperatures over F; these can be supplied by such line-focusing collectors.

Introduction Parabolic trough solar air collector. Solar energy is considered as an outstanding alternative energy to replace fossil energy because of its large potential and non-polluting nature (Renewable and Agency, ).The simplest way to utilize solar energy is to transform it to thermal energy by using solar collectors.

This paper provides a software simulation model for performance prediction of a parabolic trough collectors system (PTCs), as a part of solar thermal power plants. The simulation has been carried o.

This paper is concerned with an experimental study of a simple parabolic trough solar collector tested under the local.

Parabolic trough solar collector technology is currently the most proven solar thermal collector technology. This is primarily due to the nine plants operating in California's Mojave Desert since the mids.

In these plants, large fields of parabolic trough collectors supply the thermal energy used to produce steam supplied to a Rankine steam turbine-generator.

The applications of solar thermal systems in diverse areas of technology were illustrated to emphasize the need of its use whenever possible. Barlev et al. presented a review on concentrating collectors, viz. parabolic trough collectors, heliostat field collectors, linear Fresnel reflector, parabolic dish collector etc.

They suggested that. Arasu AV, Sornakumar T () Design, manufacture and testing of fiberglass reinforced parabola trough for parabolic trough solar collectors. Sol Energy – CrossRef Google Scholar 5.

Concentrated solar power (CSP, also known as concentrating solar power, concentrated solar thermal) systems generate solar power by using mirrors or lenses to concentrate a large area of sunlight onto a receiver. Electricity is generated when the concentrated light is converted to heat (solar thermal energy), which drives a heat engine (usually a steam turbine) connected to an.

The solar collector module used for testing is shown in Fig. The solar collector has an overall width of 1 m and a length of m, and the evacuated tubes (SUNDA vacuum tube, SEIDO1) of diameter 10 cm are placed along its axis.

The module is tilted to the sun at an angle of approximately 30° and aligned along the north–south direction. The Parabolic Trough Collector (PTC) is the most common type of high-temperature solar thermal technology, in which the heat transfer fluid is.

The technology of parabolic trough collectors (PTC) is used widely in concentrating Solar Power (CSP) plants worldwide. However this type of large-size collectors cannot be officially tested by an accredited laboratory and certified by an accredited certification body so far, as there is no standard adapted to its particularity, and the current published standard for solar thermal collectors.

Sandia National Laboratories has completed thermal performance testing on the Schott parabolic trough receiver using the LS-2 collector on the Sandia rotating platform at the National Solar Thermal Test Facility in Albuquerque, NM. This testing was funded as part of the US DOE Sun-Lab USA-Trough program.

An investigation is presented on the performance of a small-scale solar power and heating system with short parabolic trough collectors (PTCs). The steady-state model of the short PTCs is evaluated with outside experiments. The model mainly contains the heat loss of the receiver, the peak optical efficiency and the incident angle factor consisting of incident.

The parabolic trough collector is one of the most developed solar concentrating technologies for medium and high temperatures (up to K). This solar technology is applied in many applications and so its investigation is common. The objective of this study is to develop analytical expressions for the determination of the thermal performance of parabolic trough collectors.

The plants are operating with thermal storage of hours using molten salt [9]. Price et al. [10] have validated their FLAGSOL model based on Parabolic Trough Collector. The projected performance and actual performance of a 30 MW Solar Energy Generation System (SEGS) plant over a full year of operation is 6%.

This paper presents a summary of the testing procedure and a validation of the methodology of parabolic trough collector in solar thermal power plants. The applied testing methodology is the one proposed within the Spanish standardization sub-committee AEN/CTN /SC working group WG2 related to the components for solar thermal power plants.

For the development and establishment of concentrating solar thermal collectors a reliable and comparable performance testing and evaluation is of great importance. To ensure a consistent performance testing in the area of low- temperature collectors a widely accepted and commonly used international testing standard (ISO ) is already available.ENHANCEMENT OF SOLAR PARABOLIC TROUGH COLLECTOR USING SECONDARY REFLECTOR P Sundaram 1, R Senthil 2 Department of Mechanical Engineering, SRM University, Kattankulathur-Chennai, India 1 [email protected] 2 [email protected] Abstract— The slight misalignment in the focal of a parabolic trough collector .
