Optimization of reflector-boosters for solar flat-collectors

Technical Report:

Abstract

To increase the working temperature of solar energy systems two-sided collectors together with appropriate reflectors are used. Here, the efficiency of various reflector shapes was investigated and attempts made to optimize them under several criteria. The results indicate that with cheap and simple to manufacture reflectors good energy gains can be expected.
