Solar For After Dark: How CSP Works

In trough CSP, the receiver is not atop a tower, but is simply a small pipe running continuously in front of the rows of the parabolic mirrors throughout the solar field. A heat transfer fluid (HTF) runs through the piping and is heated by the sunlight that is focused by the reflection on this continuous point in front of the rows of parabolic trough-shaped mirrors. This HTF traverses the solar field and when it gets to the power block goes through a heat exchange system where the hot oil is ultimately converted to steam to make electricity thermally. (Luz’s SEGS I-IX, 1980–1990)
