A High Flux Solar Thermal Receiver
Technology Description The microchannel based solar receiver (MSR) uses a modular arrangement of microchannels in its design that enable the working fluid to be heated in a concentrating solar receiver. The MSR is made of nickel super alloy and designed with the microchannels operating in parallel, which allows a large amount of flux to be removed ...
