Parabolic trough solar concentrators use parabolic mirrors to focus the sunlight onto a receiver pipe filled with liquid. The heat energy is then used to generate electricity in a steam generator. The tilt angle of the reflecting mirrors is important to ensure that the sun rays are continuously focused on the receiver pipes.
Here it is best to use a simple, rugged and flexible measuring system. Hohner Inclinometers IN360C and IN360A are the best choice:
- Easy installation directly on the panel
- Extremely compact and robust construction
- Work in all weather and lighting conditions
- Not affected by mechanical hysteresis
