Receiver Geometries for Solar Dish Concentrators

Dunn, Rebecca


This thesis studies receiver/reactor geometry for the ammonia thermochemical storage system and dish concentrators, using the case study of a masked 9 m2 dish. Experimental results proved that altering the geometric arrangement – in this case the cone angle – of reactor tubes within a cavity receiver significantly affects the heat transfers within and heat losses from the receiver. By consequence both the receiver efficiency and the solar-to-chemical...[Show more]
