Title (EN) THERMAL ABSORBER WITH GRAVITY COUNTERFLOW REGENERATION FOR SOLAR AMTEC POWER SYSTEMS
(FR) ABSORBEUR THERMIQUE AVEC RÉGÉNÉRATION À CONTRE-COURANT PAR GRAVITÉ POUR SYSTÈMES À ÉNERGIE SOLAIRE AMTEC
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A thermal absorber including a light-transparent reservoir having an alkali metal received therein, a housing sealingly coupled to the reservoir to define an enclosed volume, the housing including a thermal barrier wall that divides the volume into a cold chamber and a hot chamber, the cold chamber including a sump having a drain hole in fluid communication with the hot chamber, and at least one AMTEC cell supported by the cell supporting surface, the AMTEC cell extending through the cold chamber and the hot chamber.
(FR)L'invention concerne un absorbeur thermique comprenant un réservoir transparent à la lumière dans lequel est placé un métal alcalin, une enceinte couplée de façon étanche au réservoir afin de définir un volume clos, l'enceinte comprenant une paroi formant barrière thermique qui divise le volume en un compartiment froid et un compartiment chaud, le compartiment froid comprenant un bac doté d'un trou d'évacuation en communication fluidique avec le compartiment chaud, et au moins une cellule AMTEC portée par la surface d'appui de la cellule, la cellule AMTEC s'étendant à travers le compartiment froid et le compartiment chaud.
