Concentrating Solar Power System
- What is concentrating solar power system?
Concentrated solar power is a way of generating energy by concentrating sunlight using mirrors. Natural sunlight is reflected, concentrated, and focused on a certain spot by the mirrors, which is then transformed into heat. The heat is subsequently converted to steam, which powers a turbine and generates electricity. Because CSP technology can store the heat produced, the process may be repeated indefinitely. It may thus be utilized on days when there is no sun, as well as before and after dawn and sunset.
- How does concentrated solar power work ?
CSP systems work by concentrating the sun's solar energy onto a receiver, which then converts it to heat. The heat is subsequently turned to steam, which powers a turbine that generates electricity.
There are four types of CSP Technologies
- Parabolic trough systems
- Power tower systems
- Linear fresnel systems
- Parabolic dish systems
Solar Water Heater
Solar water heaters heat water by utilizing natural sunlight. This method is based on the thermosiphon principle and is intended to supply hot water without the need of costly energy. This is the most efficient way to create hot water, saving money on electricity while also being environmentally friendly.
