Abstract

Parabolic trough solar collector is a solar thermal collector which works on solar energy, the efficiency of this collector depends on the thermal energy of sun. The main objective of this work to present an upto date literature review on the parabolic trough solar collector. During the literature survey from the various research paper related to parabolic trough solar collector it has been observed that there is a lot of research work have been done in the same field and still there is a large scope to work on the parabolic trough solar collector. From the literature review it has been also observed that many authors worked on numerical as well as experimental setups, many of them use various optimization technique which was validate by various simulation tools like ANSYS, computational fluids dynamics tool Fluent and many more.
