Concentrated Solar Thermal Power ( CSP ) Technology

Concentrated Solar Thermal Power ( CSP ) Technology Explained. The Basics

The are several different types of concentrated solar thermal technologies and ways to apply them. This video from the U.S. department of energy outlines the basics of concentrating solar power ( CSP ) technology as it stands today. The most common forms of CSP include something as simple as solar tubes in a solar hot water system for home or industry, to parabolic solar trough, solar dishes that track the sun and solar towers with hundreds of computer controlled mirrors.

Evacuated Solar Tube Collector

Thermal performance and Parameter Analysis of a U-pipe Evacuated Solar Tube Collector

The dependence of the thermal efficiency on meteorological conditions and important tube design parameters, including tube size, thermal characteristics (flow rate, heat loss coefficient, absorption coefficient of the selective absorbing coating), was investigated. In particular, the adaptation of collector thermal parameters to meteorological conditions was analyzed.

Tattoo Biobatteries Produce Power From Sweat

When 15 volunteers wore the tattoo biobatteries while exercising on a stationary bike, they produced different amounts of power. Interestingly, people who were less fit (exercising fewer than once a week) produced more power than those who were moderately fit (exercising one to three times per week).
