Solar collectors

Fresnel CollectorSolar collectors useful for MSS-CSP may work in different temperature regimes, as different thermodynamic processes are used. Smaller fields sizes open up new application fields, e.g. building integrated solar thermal power. In order to reach sufficiently high temperatures which improve the thermodynamic efficiency due to Carnot concentrating collectors are needed. Modular design and flexible field construction are one possibility to potentially lower costs through mass production.
