105: Solar Thermal Demonstration System with a Large Paraboloidal Dish Concentrator

A large paraboloidal dish solar concentrator, featuring a hexagonal aperture unit covered with 400 m2 of mirrors, has been developed in Australia.  By tracking the sun throughout the day, the dish produces superheated steam in a boiler placed at the focal point of the concentrator.  The steam is expanded in a 50 kWe steam engine/generator set.  The demonstration dish has produced 60 MWh of solar power over four years.
