Solar Concentration & it's applications

Advanced Outdoor Solar System - Business or Residential     


A heliostat is a two axis solar tracking mirror that reflects sunlight onto a fixed receiver. Furthermore the geometry between the Sun, mirror, and receiver are constantly changing throughout the day.

1. Solar Trackers: 

Photovoltaic (or PV) systems operate at maximum capacity when the sun's rays strike its solar panels at a 90°angle of incidence.  With a tracker to shift the PV array orientation toward the brightest spot in the sky.  Increases the PV harvesting by 30-70% depending on each designs.  The tracking device adjusts PV array in the early morning to catch the rising sun and during the day, adjusts every 5 seconds automatically to the best position to harvest more energy.

2. Solar Heliostats:

There are numerous designs for all kinds of applications, concentrate the heat to cook or send to central receiver then connect to Sterling Steam Engine to generate electricity!

3. Applications:

Government has large projects and smaller business and residence can also utilize the new Technology to increase the power output of their own PV generation.
