Abstract

Solar energy is radiant light and heat from the Sun that is harnessed using a range of ever-evolving technologies such as solar heating, photovoltaics, solar thermal energy, solar architecture, molten salt power plants, and artificial photosynthesis. A parabolic trough is a type of solar thermal collector that is straight in one dimension and curved as a parabola in the other two, lined with a polished metal mirror. In this report, the study of parabolic shaped collector, receiver tube, and loading that model in Ansys was being done and studying about various concepts used in the same. HTF (Heat Transfer Fluid) used in this project is water, which will pass through a solar absorber tube at a certain velocity. After passing the fluid, the Temperature and Flowrate of the fluid were checked. The Numerical Solution was done for water as HTF and simulated for 9 AM to 4 PM. The maximum temperature obtained was 306.75 K at 1:00 PM. Therefore, the output Temperature contour was done by taking 1 PM as time.
