Abstract:

At the present time, plastic films, covered on one side with a thin layer of aluminum, are used as solar energy concentrators in heliotechnology. Commercially produced film is insufficiently broad to obtain concentrators with large concavities. Therefore, in making concentrators with diameters larger than the film width, their surfaces are glued together from pieces. Thus, concentrators with parallel, radial and circular concentric seams are discussed. The results of experimental investigations of such concentrators was compared with data from investigations of concentrators without seams. Mirror diameters were identical, 0.5m in all variants of the tests, and the width and number of seams were not indicated. Author
