Category Archives: Concentrated Solar Thermal (CST)
Mirrors and trackers are used to concentrate a large area of sunlight to a small area to generate a lot of heat by the Concentrated Solar system. The heat generated is converted into mechanical energy by turbines and then converted into electricity using electric generators. There is different Concentrated Solar Thermal (CST) system such as Linear Fresnel Reflector, solar towers, parabolic troughs and parabolic trays. Each one of these systems can produce high temperatures and their efficiencies can vary with the way they can track sun and focus the sun’s rays to convert to heat.
