An experimental study of ammonia receiver geometries for dish concentrators

Dunn, Rebecca; Lovegrove, Keith; Burgess, Gregory; Pye, John


This paper presents experimental evaluation of ammonia receiver geometries with a 9 m2 dish concentrator. The experiments involved varying the geometric arrangement of reactor tubes in a thermochemical reactor built from a series of tubes arranged in a conical shape inside a cavity receiver. Differences in conical arrangement were found to affect the efficiency of energy conversion. The solar-to-chemical efficiency gain obtained by varying the receiver geometry was up to 7 absolute. From this,...[Show more]
