Title (EN) TRACKING SOLAR MIRROR SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME DE MIROIR SOLAIRE ORIENTABLE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A concentrating solar collector that includes a target, a plurality of mirror assemblies, and a master tracking assembly that controls the mirror assemblies is disclosed. The mirror assemblies are fixed at a plurality of distinct locations with respect to the target, each mirror assembly includes a moveable mirror and a tracking assembly. Each tracking assembly includes a target member, a sun member, and a tracking actuator. The target member is fixed relative to the target such that the target member points at the target. The sun member is moveable relative to the target such that when the sun member points to the sun, light from the sun is reflected onto the target. The master tracking assembly moves each of the sun members such that the sun members simultaneously point at the sun. The tracking actuators are mechanical devices that are coupled to the master tracking assembly by a mechanical linkage.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un capteur solaire de concentration, qui comprend une cible, une pluralité d'ensembles miroir et un ensemble orientable maître, qui commande les ensembles miroir. Les ensembles miroir sont fixés sur une pluralité d'emplacements distincts par rapport à la cible, chaque ensemble miroir comprenant un miroir mobile et un ensemble orientable. Chaque ensemble orientable comprend un élément cible, un élément soleil et un actionneur orientable. L'élément cible est fixé par rapport à la cible, de sorte que l'élément cible pointe vers la cible. L'élément soleil est amovible par rapport à la cible, de sorte que, lorsque l'élément soleil pointe vers le soleil, la lumière du soleil est réfléchie sur la cible. L'ensemble orientable principal déplace chacun des éléments soleil, de sorte que les éléments soleil pointent simultanément vers le soleil. Les actionneurs orientables sont des dispositifs mécaniques, couplés à l'ensemble orientable principal par une liaison mécanique.
