Cost-Efficient Solar Concentrating System
The experiment aims to develop cost efficient solar concentration system model in converting solar energy to electrical energy. The existing solar concentrating systems are expensive and less convincing to use. In this experiment, the prototype consists of primary concentrator, secondary concentrators and receiver. This system is converted solar-thermal energy to electrical energy. The 3D models of primary concentrator were designed by Rhinoceros software. The primary concentrator is collected, focused and reflected upward sunlight from the sun. The secondary concentrator was used to concentrate sunlight and reflected to end of solar collecting field. Overall system was tested which primary concentrator was giving focal line, secondary concentrator was reflected focal line but second focal line was larger area and less density.
