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: Steps to Make Mini Concentrating Solar Thermal Power Plant
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.
Connect all 100 heliostats on a 3*3 feet ACP Sheet as shown in the Video.
Now construct the tower, receiver and other necessary lighting systems.
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.
