New testing facility for solar thermal components to boost India's growing solar sector

New Delhi. A newly installed Concentrated Solar Thermal (CST) based test rig facility in Hyderabad could help the growing solar industry in India test the capability and performance of solar thermal components such as solar receiver tubes, heat-transferring fluids, concentrating mirrors is. The facility, set up by the International Advanced Research Center for Powder Metallurgy and New Materials (ARCI), an autonomous institute of the Department of Science and Technology (DST), allows the CST system’s solar thermal components such as solar receiver tubes, liquid for heat transfer, under the conditions of use. The material will recognize solar thermal components such as concentric mirrors, AR coated glass tubes. It provides performance of standard components to indigenous components under different parameters of operation (e.g., flow rate of heat-transferring fluid (HTF), operating temperature, pressure, etc.) and various DNI (Direct Normal Irradiance) conditions. heat gain and heat loss properties). The development of solar thermal technologies in low- and medium-temperature applications requires greater attention to indigenous solar thermal components manufacturing facilities and economical engineering designs as most solar thermal companies import solar thermal components, especially from China and Europe. .
