Design and fabrication of Solar dish array and study it characterization


Designed and fabricated a (3.25m) solar dish array ,by using (52) plane mirror. These mirrors are level and fixed to reflect the radiation in one area (focus) and after distance (1.5 m). In addition, it was found that the heat concentration (217.79 W) the useful energy (1416.125W) and the center efficiency were55% at (400-700W/m2). The solar dish array is relatively suitable for solar thermal applications.
