Experimental and numerical characterization of a new 45 kW(el) multisource high-flux solar simulator

Levêque, Gaël; Bader, Roman; Lipinski, Wojciech; Haussener, Sophia


The performance of a new high-flux solar simulator consisting of 18 x 2.5 kWel radiation modules has been evaluated. Grayscale images of the radiative flux distribution at the focus are acquired for each module individually using a water-cooled Lambertian target plate and a CCD camera. Raw images are corrected for dark current, normalized by the exposure time and calibrated with local absolute heat flux measurements to produce radiative flux maps with 180 μm resolution. The resulting measured...[Show more]
