Solar parabolic dish concentrator consists of a concentrator which uses solar grade mirrors as reflectors and a receiver. The sunlight is concentrated onto the receiver and the medium which flows through the receiver gets heated up. Solar parabolic dish concentrators can be effectively retrofitted / integrated with steam boilers, hot water boilers, absorption cooling etc. so that solar energy can be used as a supplementary source to conventional energy systems like LPG / Diesel fired boilers.
Main Components of the Solar PV Power Generating System
• Solar PV Array of required capacity to generate power
• Solar Charge Controller Unit to regulate the power
• A Battery Bank to store the power (not required for solar pumps)
• High efficient power inverter to convert the DC to AC for powering conventional loads
