Introduction: Make Mini Concentrated Solar Thermal Power Plant to Explain Working

Concentrated solar thermal power plants produce electricity from the heat from sun’s rays. It’s an effective source of large-scale energy production.

Firstly a solar farm is made up of heliostats. These are computer controlled mirrors which follow the movement of the sun in order to best reflect its rays towards a central point throughout the day. A solar farm can include from several hundred to several thousand heliostats which communicate with each other over wifi in order to optimize their yield.

Step 1:

Heliostats are the building blocks of a CONCENTRATED SOLAR TECHNOLOGY. Watch the video carefully to learn how we constructed a heliostats model from reeper pieces, Aluminium sheet and mirror pieces. Take care while handling Glass pieces. The more heliostats you make the more it would be beautiful.

Step 2:

Connect all 100 heliostats on a 3*3 feet ACP Sheet as shown in the Video.

Step 3:

Now construct the tower, receiver and other necessary lighting systems.

Step 4:

Now is the Time to Learn the working Principle behind Concentrating Solar power tower technology. Look at these diagrams, then carefully watch the second half of the video.

Thanks a lot for your A++ project idea. One remark. Is it possible to paint an even surface to get the heliostat ready with less effort? I actually working on some scale project to evaluate PV installation before implementation in real size.
