3-D CFD Modeling of a Slanted Receiver in a Compact Linear Fresnel Plant with Etendue-Matched Mirror Field
Compact linear Fresnel receivers can be modified to include an etendue conserving mirror field as opposed to a flat field. Etendue can be used as an indicator of the losses within the system and therefore the optical optimization of the mirror field seeks to conserve incoming etendue. This can be done once for peak conditions and subsequently fixed with mirrors rotating throughout the day; or the mirror axis points can also be allowed to move up and down throughout the day, creating new etenduedoi:10.1016/j.egypro.2015.03.022 fatcat:dsvpk7rllvevnn4zan7jyo7pgm
