General Product Information:
Solar thermal power plants harness heat sunlight, concentrate it and convert it to electricity. They are used at medium and large scale to generate grid power. They are used for residential, industrial and commercial areas. In the tower system, an array of flat or parabolic mirrors is used to focus heat on a tower where the fluid is heated to extremely high temperature and used to drive turbines and generators. Parabolic reflectors system uses parabolic mirrors to concentrate infrared rays to a small section so that the working fluid is heated to very high temperature. This hot liquid is then expanded in a turbine that is coupled to a generator.
