Project Description and Objectives
A major limit to the wide application of solar energy is due to cost. With the advantages such as compact volume, lower weight, small focal length and low cost, new solar collectors are being developed for solar radiation concentration and system modularization. With these advancements, the optical efficiency of transmitted solar radiation is improved. In this study collector performance will be investigated.
The objectives of the project are to further develop the latest developments in solar collectors and to design and test the system.
Be familiar with solar energy.
Can propose a new design, analyze it and optimize the designs.
Proceed with experimental validation of the concept.
Write a technical report on the results.
