Title (EN) SOLAR COLLECTOR WITH END MODIFICATIONS
(FR) CAPTEUR SOLAIRE AVEC MODIFICATIONS D'EXTRÉMITÉ
Abstract:
(EN) In one embodiment, a concentrating solar energy collector, which tracks movements of the sun along one axis has a reflective trough, at least one solar receiver mounted above the reflective trough and configured so that incident sunlight striking the reflective trough is directed toward the at least one solar receiver, and a reflector extender coupled to a first end of the reflective trough and configured to capture and direct incident sunlight towards the at least one solar receiver. In another embodiment, one or more extended end reflectors are attached with a reflective trough of a solar energy collector.
(FR) L'invention concerne un capteur d'énergie solaire de concentration, suivant les mouvements du soleil le long d'un axe et comprenant un miroir réfléchissant, au moins un récepteur solaire placé sur le miroir réfléchissant et configuré de sorte que la lumière solaire incidente frappant le miroir réfléchissant soit dirigée vers le ou les récepteurs solaires, et un prolongateur de réflecteur couplé à une première extrémité du miroir réfléchissant et configuré pour capter et diriger la lumière solaire incidente vers le ou les récepteurs solaires. Dans un autre mode de réalisation, un ou plusieurs réflecteurs d'extrémité déployée sont fixés avec un miroir réfléchissant d'un collecteur d'énergie solaire.
