Design and Operation of Solar Parabolic Dish for Water Heating


Design and operation of (2m) parabolic solar dish, water heater for hot water application was described. The heater was designed to provide hot water up to 100 oC using the clean solar energy. The system includes the design and construction of solar tracking unit in order to increase system performance. Experimental test results, which obtained from clear and sunny day refer to highly energy-conversion efficiency and promising a well performed water heating system.
