Introduction ~ Concentrating Solar Thermal Technology.

Concentrating Solar Thermal Technology.

  • As we Know Many power plants today use fossil fuels as a heat source to boil water, The steam from the boiling water spins a large turbine, which drives a generator to produce electricity.
  • However, a new generation of power plants with concentrating solar power systems uses the sun as a heat source.
  • The 3 main types of concentrating solar power systems are :- linear concentrator, dish/engine, and power tower systems.
  • ! more Importent Application of CST Technology is ‘solar cooker‘, It is a device which uses the energy of direct sunlight to heat, for cooking or pasteurize food or drink.

Let us we learn basic concept about CST technology.
