Optimization of Small Scale Concentrated Solar Power Plant With Revolving Mechanical Arm
Keywords:small scale concentrated solar power plant, receiver, absorber plate, heliostat, frame, and revolving mechanical arm.
Electrification ratio in India by the end of 2014 was about 70%. This means that 30% of people/of the group does not have electricity. So I am designing small scale (focused one’s effort/increased/mainly studied) solar power plant with revolving mechanical arm which can be operated in small villages or in that areas were electrification is not possible. Some restrictions of electrification in these areas are the cost of (having different things working together as one unit) grid construction is (compared to other things) high, the limitation of energy useful things/valuable supplies and the population of the area is (compared to other things) small.
A small scale (focused one’s effort/increased/mainly studied) solar power plant with revolving mechanical arm and (related to energy from plants) energy can be a good choice to solve the electricity problem in these areas. This option is based on the (compared to other things) good possible strength of solar energy in some areas of India which is daily average strength is about 3-5 kWh per day. This presents a series of activities in developing a (focused one’s effort/increased/mainly studied) solar power plant which includes the idea-based design of the small-scale system with the ability (to hold or do something) of 10kW.
This project focused on the design & analysis of a small scale concentrated solar plant and revolving mechanical arm at solar receiver for integration into this planned solar unit. Mean irradiance levels at the focal spot of the solar receiver of 3 – 5 kWh per day and peak levels of 14 kWh per day were identified as major design challenges.
