Abstract

The combined heat and power solar (CHAPS) collector under development at the ANU is a PV/Thermal collector utilizing parabolic mirrors to concentrate light by a factor of 25-35x. This paper presents some measured results for thermal and electrical output from the CHAPS collector, as well as an overview of the major components of the CHAPS collector.
