Concentrating Solar Power

A dish/engine system uses a mirrored dish similar to a very large satellite dish, although to minimize costs, the mirrored dish is usually composed of many smaller flat mirrors formed into a dish shape.

The dish-shaped surface directs and concentrates sunlight onto a thermal receiver, which absorbs and collects the heat and transfers it to the engine generator. The most common type of heat engine used today in dish/engine systems is the Stirling engine. This system uses the fluid heated by the receiver to move pistons and create mechanical power. The mechanical power is then used to run a generator or alternator to produce electricity.

    Add Thermal Electric cells outside the cooling space. Extra energy is extra energy.

    CSP systems produce next to nothing in scattered light. They only work if the sun is directly observable, almost no power during cloudy days. Photvoltaic panels don’t have this problem.
     They should try making the heliostats photovoltaics and the excess light reflects to the tower.

    I made it by myself. I used WoodPrix scripts for that.

    What about overnight & rainy days/ overcast days? It’s these points that you don’t address that matter.

    You should check for Solar Keymark certificate and parameters (like efficiency or power output) while trying to find any solar thermal collector (flat-plate or evacuated tube). There is also available search engine for collectors based on selected parameters taken from Solar Keymark certficates: http://solars-info.com/

    I invented a breakthrough low-power sustainable source of energy.
    It will beI useful for medical electronics and for cellular telephones.
    I am looking for start-up capital in the range $400 000 to $4Million.
    I will pay 10% of the investment for finding an investor.
