An absorption chiller is a machine that operates on thermodynamic principles to convert the solar thermal energy to air conditioning and refrigeration. Absorption chillers use a thermal compressor instead of a mechanical compressor. The system operates in three phases: evaporation, absorption and regeneration. The first stage involves liquid form refrigerant evaporating low partial pressure surroundings, [...]
Solar power can be used in many extraordinary ways. One of the most majestic applications of solar thermal energy is the solar furnace. These are enormous installations that make use of solar thermal energy for extreme high heat processes (temperatures as high as 3500oC/6330oF). The technology is wonderful for high temperature researchers; the heat produced [...]
Many people want solar hot water but are overwhelmed at the choices available. Many people know flat panels, but because of them being a fixed position, they only collect solar energy on the south of the roof. Therefore you are lucky if you are able to collect thermal energy for more than 3 hours a [...]
Large solar energy systems for water heating can be used in a multitude of buildings which have either a corresponding domestic hot water usage, or a whole years solar heating requirements. These are some applications that would benefit from solar concentrators which can provide 44,000 BTU
The problem in flat solar panels is that they have a static position, more than 45
Many companies are interested in reducing their overall energy consumption and they like the idea of using alternative energy as a source of power.
