Description

This team has designed and built a module parabolic solar troughs to produce hot water for an organic Rankine Cycle. This is a thermodynamic cycle that produces energy and requires a heated fluid to operate. A parabolic solar trough is a type of concentrating solar technology that directs sunlight at a focal line, heating the fluid inside.
