In the last year I made a solar project as you see in photos above
in this project the main idea is to reflect the sun radiations on focal line to heat the water in the pipe at the center of the parabolic reflector based on a iron frame also it fixed on a satellite dish holder
then I add an electrical arm to move the frame to face the sun during it gos in the sky the motor joined to a electrical circuit that takes a signal from two small solar cells I built them as a sensors also it fixed on the reflector
the result is
it heats 100 liters of water in a tank above the set and now it work very well
note : I will add more informations in coming days
