Evaluation And Simulation Of Heat Flux For Parabolic Trough Collector

The Parabolic Trough Collector (PTC) with central receiver is one of the most suitable systems for solar power generation. The main element of the plant is the collectors. In this research, the heat flux of parabolic trough collector is analyzed by theoretically and numerically in hourly for 21st December. Here, incidence angle, solar declination, solar zenith angle, and solar constant are considered for Mandalay, Myanmar. Position of axis for parabolic trough collector is considered for both of east-west and north-south axis. Parabolic Trough Collector, LS-2 type is selected. Glass and steel tube are used for absorber and glass envelope. From this research, useful information is provided to construct parabolic trough collector for thermal power plant.
