Exergy analysis of the focal-plane flux distribution of solar-thermal concentrators

Asselineau, Charles-Alexis; Coventry, Joe; Pye, John


As concentrating solar power systems push towards higher temperatures and lower costs, it is critical that losses of overall system performance can be attributed correctly to the appropriate source. Up to now, this has been poorly done for the case of optical errors, since applicable methods do not exist to quantify how much different imperfections contribute to reducing the upper-bound efficiency of the overall system. Here, the exergy impact of varied optical design parameters—slope error,...[Show more]
